For the record,

Emacs 25.1 builds fine and runs fine under WSL providing you install all
the required packages.
I used :
 ../emacs/configure --with-jpeg --with-xpm --with-tiff --with-rsvg
--with-xml2 --with-gnutls --with-imagemagick --with-png=yes
and mobaxterm as an X server. Everything is ok. I could even load Spacemacs
with its about 100 packages.

Yes, emacs-25 branch builds (adopting the work around 'echo 0 | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space' before to start the build) but I do not use these builds in X,

$ /opt/emacs/bin/emacs

starts Emacs in the WSL terminal (aka DOS command prompt window in W10). It seems to work fine.. but have found an issue with the packages manager. See: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnu-emacs/2016-12/msg00777.html.

Have you tried to use your builds in terminal mode (noX)?
