I'm afraid I can't offer much useful input here.  When I first tried
emacs 21 wouldn't bootstrap because the dumped emacs died with a bus
error.  I compared unexelf.c with the one in emacs 20 and the one in
xemacs (both of which work flawlessly), and re-introduced some code that
had been removed.  Afterwards emacs 21 worked, although it is not quite
right: it gives dbx fits, and is subject to runaway memory growth and
sporadic crashes.

I can try to beg time from someone who actually understands the elf file
if that would help.  Maybe whoever removed that code from the previous
versions remembers why?
