I don't know why it segfaults in the current situation, but usually it
works "just fine", modulo never reclaiming memory.
More specifically, such an Emacs should usually have no trouble
compiling a few .el files (tho the memory growth usually prevents such
an Emacs from recompiling all the .el files).
