I updated a soekris net6501-70 from netbsd-6 from a year ago to recent, and installed the pkgin binary package from ftp.netbsd.org. I used it to install a few other things (bash, m4, rsync) and generally all was well. But emacs-24-nox111 dumps core on startup. I have seen similar(?) behavior when changing an i386 system to an PAE kernel. So I wonder if the emacs dump/undump process bakes in some assumptions that cause the binary to be not portable. And if so, what we should do about it?
