Subject: [gentoo-mips] Emacs in X with toolkits?

Hi,

I've been trying to make Emacs work in X on my SGI Octane. KDE works, Emacs in 
console mode works, and Emacs in X without toolkits also works, but if I 
compile Emacs with either Xaw3d or Motif I get segfaults at startup.

Looking around a bit, I see this problem reported as early as December 2001[1] 
and as late as April 2005[2]. Other reports (with backtraces from GDB) are at 
[3] and [4].

The Debian bug report[1] claims that this is due to a bug in a new version of 
binutils and that it was fixed in January 2002. I have not found any details 
about this binutils bug.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on?
