I spent a bit of time on one of the porterboxes and gathered a little
more information, though in the end, we just added -O0 on arm64 for now
as well.

I was able to reproduce this on asachi using a git checkout of
origin/emacs-25.2 (i.e. clean upstream tree, no debian adjustments),
though I did emulate our VPATH build (see below).

One notable oddity -- while trying to narrow down the cause, I found
that the crash could be reliably triggered by adding the .git dir to the
(copied) build tree.  For example, this either builds, or crashes,
depending on whether or not the .git dir is introduced.

  rm -rf debian
  mkdir -p debian/build-src
  cp -a $(ls -A | egrep -v '^(\.git|\.pc|debian)$') debian/build-src

  # If this line is removed, the build works fine, otherwise it crashes
  cp -a .git debian/build-src/

  pushd debian/build-src
  mkdir debian/build-x
  cd debian/build-x
  ../build-src/configure ...
  make -j

When the build crashes, it's always while trying to produce c-by.el, and
the crash looks similar to the one reported earlier in this thread,

I wondered if the presence of the .git dir was altering the behavior of
autogen.sh (or something else) in a way that exposes the problem.

Hope this helps
