Both the emacs and emacs-nox create versions of emacs which dump core on Solaris 11. I have verified this on two systems using two different versions of pkgsrc.
bmake install

Install does not complete as part of the process runs emacs for installation, resulting in a core dump that aborts the install process.

When using emacs (with X) the core dump does not occur until emacs is closed.

Both fail on the exact place in installation:
