bug#8437: Emacs crash when building with --enable-checking on Mac OS X

When Emacs is configured with --enable-checking=xmallocoverrun on Mac OS X, Emacs crashes during the build process.  The error is as follows.

temacs(20348,0x7fff70e01ca0) malloc: *** error for object 0x10076c010: Non-aligned pointer being freed (2)
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
/bin/sh: line 1: 20348 Abort trap              `/bin/pwd`/temacs --batch --load loadup bootstrap
make[1]: *** [bootstrap-emacs] Error 1

Note that I set attempted to debug the problem with gdb.  I set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break as directed by the error message.  The resulting backtrace is as follows.

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Configure Emacs using the following command on Mac OS X.
    ./configure --enable-checking=xmallocoverrun --with-ns CFLAGS='-g3 -O0'
2.  Build Emacs using the following command.
    make install
3.  Emacs crashes when " `/bin/pwd`/temacs --batch --load loadup bootstrap" is called.
