RE: emacs 21.2 crashes immediately (new build on Intel/Solaris 8)

The problem appears to be specific to the compiler being used.
Until now I used this SUN compiler: "ProWorks PC3.0.1 21 Jan 1995", and
was always successful in building new emacs versions until version 21.1

Using GCC or a newer SUN compiler: "Sun WokShop 6 update 2 C 5.3 2001/05/15",
does create a working new emacs (21.2) version!!

In trying to use GDB on the crashing version, I have not been able to derive any
useful information; it does not work very well with the ProWorks-compiled code.

(I'll try to get some more info using dbx.)

Would you please investigate the data being used in these innermost
frames, to see what invalid data caused the crash?

I recommend you use GDB so that the special commands for debugging
Emacs can work.  Also please read etc/DEBUG.
