I cannot see anything in Emacs 20.6's unexelf.c that used .got
sections.  Can you tell more precisely what was removed in Emacs 21?
WIthout the additional info, I cannot figure out who removed that, and
so cannot ask that person for the reasons, nor look in the logs for
possible explanations.

That's very strange: I use stock Emacs 21.1 on SGI Irix 6.5 all the
time, and I have yet to see a single crash.  dbx seems to work on it
reasonably well, but I didn't debug Emacs on that machine enough to
have a firm opinion.

Did you link your Emacs with optional graphics libraries (XPM, TIFF,
etc.), and if so, are those dynamic libraries or static libraries?
