What version of GCC is the one that produces a bad binary?  What does
"gcc --version" says?

Can someone run Emacs under GDB and see where exactly does it abort?

One possible idea to check is to use lower level of optimizations when
building Emacs, like -O0 or -O1.  Can someone see if that produces a
good binary?
