Emacs 21.4a dumps core while exiting

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

        When we recently upgraded from emacs 21.3 to emacs 21.4a on
our Solaris 9 machines, we found that emacs would cause a coredump
when it exited.  Buffers were written correctly to files.  We tried
reverting to emacs 21.3, but now it does the same thing.  Even
clearing out all files installed by emacs and reinstalling does not
prevent this behavior.  The only change we can think of that might
cause this was an upgrade of gcc to version 4.0.1 prior to the emacs

        I have attached a transcript of our installation of 21.4
(including some commands at the end to correct a script error
installing our site customization and an "emacs -version" command to
show what happens.  The -version doesn't seem to matter; emacs dumps
core without it as well.)  I apologize for the length, but it includes
the complete installation procedure as well as "uname" and other
diagnostic information.

        Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

                                                Larry Griffith
