I see the above personality calls exactly as you've shown them.

strace never gets to the next execve; the crash happens before the next
execve is run, see below.

When I run the command under gdb, it succeeds, so I had to enable core
dumps to get the backtrace:

You can't do that without a process to debug.

I bootstrapped Debian from a minimal root file system, so I didn't have
the attr package installed (i.e., the setfattr and getfattr commands
were not found).  After I installed it, the output of the above commands

$ touch x
$ setfattr -n user.variable -v value x
$ getfattr -n user.variable x
# file: x

Yes, after I re-ran configure and make after having installed the attr

$ getfattr -d src/temacs
# file: src/temacs

When setfattr is not installed, configure shows:

checking for setfattr... no

and that command is not run.  After I installed the attr package,
configure shows:

checking for setfattr... yes

and the above command shows up in make V=1 output.
