I think this is your problem:

The problem is that Emacs declares a variable `ospeed' as short
(16-bit), whereas one of your system libraries has the same variable
as an int (32 bit).  This could cause all kinds of trouble, including
crashes.

To solve this, I suggest to grep the src directory for "ospeed" and
change its declarations from "short" to "int".

This problem is already corrected in the current development sources,
so the next release should be free of it.
