Apparently the problem is applicable to all version of emacs
(including latest CVS, back to 19.34b), on all unix/unix-like
systems for which GNU ld is the default linker, and for which GNU ld
is quite up-to-date.
Symptom: emacs dump cores at XtInitializeWidgetClass () with
'Fatal Error (11).Segmentational Fault'
Solution: Adding '-z nocombreloc' to LDFLAGS
Reason: 'combreloc' has become the default for recent GNU ld, which
breaks the unexec/undump of both emacs and xemacs
thank you for posting this concise explanation and solution.
supplying more details just help the diagnostic
process, and ultimately benefit the individual himself
who supplies the details
that is very true.
