I've had to switch linux distros on my workstation (Xubuntu->Fedora),
and now the build completes perfectly, without errors. Not having
access to a Xubuntu installation, I can't reproduce or further debug
this issue, I'm sorry.
But both OS's had GCC 6 on them, and maybe what caused the failure on
Xubuntu was a certain configuration of the compiler on that platform.
Again, I can't test the configuration variable on that system, please
excuse me. But on Fedora with GCC 6.3.1 and without REL_ALLOC=no, Emacs
I guess this bug report can be closed if there's nobody else that can
reproduce the problem. Again, sorry for the botherment.
