./configure CXXFLAGS=-fno-crossjumping -fkeep-inline-functions

make check fails at the end with a weird error containing missing
instantiations of classes in flower, but other than that, it has made
things work for me again when I gave up on finding the segfaults that
had been plaguing me before.

There is no good reason for that: both options just make debugging
segfaults easier, but should not cause them to disappear.  But as they
change the memory layout, they will likely reappear at a different point
in time, seeing that they apparently are Heisenbugs.  And when they do,
I have better means of tracking them down.
