Problem installing emacs

I am attempting to install emacs and getting a seg fault from “make”.  This problem has occurred while trying to install 20.1 and 21.3.  Configure gives the following output:


Configured for `sparc-sun-solaris2.9'.


  Where should the build process find the source code?    /u1/home/mlewis/emacs-20.1

  What operating system and machine description files should Emacs use?

        `s/sol2-4.h' and `m/sparc.h'

  What compiler should emacs be built with?               gcc -g -O

  Should Emacs use the GNU version of malloc?             yes

  Should Emacs use the relocating allocator for buffers?  yes

  What window system should Emacs use?                    x11

  What toolkit should Emacs use?                          LUCID

  Where do we find X Windows header files?                Standard dirs

  Where do we find X Windows libraries?                   Standard dirs


And the seg fault comes near the end (I think) of make, as follows:


Loading ediff-hook (compiled)...

Finding pointers to doc strings...

Finding pointers to doc strings...done

Dumping under names emacs and emacs-20.1.1

413976 pure bytes used

./emacs -q -batch -f list-load-path-shadows

No Emacs Lisp load-path shadowings were found

Fatal error (11).make[1]: *** [emacs] Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

make[1]: Leaving directory `/u1/home/mlewis/emacs-20.1/src'

cd leim; make all  \

  CC='gcc' CFLAGS='-g -O' CPPFLAGS='' \

  LDFLAGS='' MAKE='make'

make[1]: Entering directory `/u1/home/mlewis/emacs-20.1/leim'

make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.

make[1]: Leaving directory `/u1/home/mlewis/emacs-20.1/leim'


After this, I can actually run emacs, but it segfaults/coredumps on exit.


Any idea what needs to be done?
