Picking up Stefan's idea, there was one change between v21.1 and 21.2
that could be relevant to this problem: the change in unexelf.c (IIRC,
Emacs uses unexelf.c on SGI, right?).  In Emacs 21.1, unexelf.c used
mmap to read the symbols and sections from temacs, while in Emacs
21.2 it uses file I/O instead.  (This was done because mmap is known
to be unreliable on NFS-mounted volumes.)

Could you see if this change is related to the problem?  For example,
what happens if you use unexelf.c from v21.1 with an otherwise
unmodified Emacs 21.2?

(I don't yet have an explanation why the effect of this change should
be different for GCC and the native compiler, but perhaps we will
understand this later.)
