Sorry, but that's not a good idea.  What if someone statically links
Emacs with the C library?

And how will you escape the segfault in the static, possibly inlined
function, of the GDK X11 backend?  That's not even as reliable as
installing a signal handler to handle the SIGSEGV, which is once again a
very bad idea.
