Hi,
I installed emacs using pkgsrc as well as the pkgin tool. Both crashed with giving a segmentation fault.


Host OS: Windows 7
Target : Installation was done on Virtual Box

VboxCMD: virtualbox --norawr0 --recompile-supervisor --startvm <netbsd_instance>

 I suspect this is the same problem as PR 46632. In that case,
 compiling emacs yourself should make it go away. Although that's
 a fairly expensive nuisance in a slow VM.

 (Does virtualbox have a 64-bit mode?)

 Well, I forgot to update the PR. I solved this issue by resizing the stack.

 By default it was showing 2048(ulimit -s was 2048)
 ulimit -s 8192 #I set stack size as 8192 . 4096 -> failed

 This was suggested from this link

 Hmm... ideally this wouldn't be necessary. So i'll leave the report
 open if you don't mind. Glad you've got it working, though.
