>Description:
	It appears that the pre-compiled binaries available in

	ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/6.1/All/

	for emacs23 and	emacs24 both segfault while starting on

	released binaries were built.	

>How-To-Repeat:
	Install emacs23 or emacs24 binary package, and see emacs
	segfault during startup.
>Fix:
	Rebuild from source (should not be necessary)

 Are the precompiled binaries built on a XEN3PAE_DOMU box?

 I've found that emacs built on a XEN3PAE_DOMU i386 box will work 
 locally but segfault on a non XEN i386 box and vice versa.
 See the tail end of PR pkg/46632.

 This is the only noncompatible binary I've found between xen and non-
 xen and its somewhat annoying.

 I wonder if this is the same issue as binaries built with compat32 on amd64.

 I confirm that this still occurs; I used some 32-bit prebuilt packages
 for the first time in years recently (32-bit hosts now being rare here,
 I wanted to avoid building only for that host), and all emacs-nox11
 versions crash at startup.

 Unfortunately those packages don't have debug symbols (should they, or
 are they available separately?), but ktrace shows SIGSEGV SEGV_ACCERR
 just after loading shared libraries and calling lwp_setprivate().

 I can't confirm for the netbsd-32 compat issue, but I remember getting
 some problem lately when trying to build a package under amd64 in a
 i686 chroot, something which I had done successfully in the past.  I'd
 have to try that again and file another PR if I discover the reason.

State-Changed-Why:
Are binary emacs packages still a problem?
Note for information: this is an issue because emacs will dump its memory and restore it, and it is thus sensitive to difference in allowable memory ranges.

 I just tried installing a binary package for emacs25-nox11 (since
 emacs25 apparently isn't available, possibly due to svg/rust) on
 NetBSD/i386 8.1, and there it worked.  I beleive the emacs23 and
 emacs24 packages have been removed from pkgsrc in the mean time,
 so I can't exactly reproduce the problem, although this is an
 indication that it's solved.

 Wasn't the problem that the pkg build hosts ran the PAE i386
 variant in Xen(?), and that this was incompatible with native
 i386 address space layout?  Not sure how that has changed since
 the problem was reported.

 Best regards,

 I suspect the fixing or PR 51654 helped this problem.
