Segmentation fault - core dumped

These core dumps sound like a serious but unrelated problem.  Can you

that was also my thought, but I would prefer to investigate only once the other things are properly solved so that any potential side effects can be ruled out.

get a GDB backtrace of the first core dump you find, to see more
details about it?

I will try, but first I will have to build gdb (which might be a challenge, we'll see..). Since I would like to do so with a "clean" code, could you maybe provide me with the "processed" (automake etc.) current sources?

This is C99 syntax I think which the IDO cc does not like.

You need to apply the patch in src/c99-to-c89.diff if you have an old
compiler that doesn't grok declarations after statements.

why don't you integrate that for all compilers? It should not hold any penalties for newer ones, does it? I could imagine maintenance being easier without having any diffs included.

        cc  -I.    -I/usr/local/include   -g -c mbswidth.c
cfe: Error: ./wcwidth.h, line 43: redefinition of 'iswprint';
previous definition at line 119 in file './wctype.h'

That should be fixed by the following patch, which is already in
gnulib (though evidently not in your copy of coreutils).  Since this
resembles what you did manually, I'll check in an appropriate change
to gnulib to lib/wctype_.h (which I'll send via separate email).

I haven't received such an email yet, but I would assume it is not needed any more once you provide me with the latest sources?
