I'm not sure if this qualifies, but I'd like to suggest that the
--with-crt-dir configure option is backported. It fixes Bug 5655 [1],
and in Gentoo we apply it to emacs-23.2 (in our stable tree) since
May, without any problems.

Corresponding commits are 100020 to 100022 [2]. (I don't remember any
more if it applied to 23.2 without conflicts. So just in case, a
backported patch for 23.2 is here: [3])
