-current gcc optimizations and XEmacs


I am having problems building editors/xemacs on a -current amd64 system

% uname -a
NetBSD 7.99.39 NetBSD 7.99.39 (HP2170P) #1: Mon Oct 17 13:36:49 CEST 2016 amd64
% fgrep GCC /etc/release
            HAVE_GCC = '53'
               MKGCC = 'yes'
           MKGCCCMDS = 'yes'

Built with -O2 (the default), the freshly built xemacs will hang indefinitely at

./xemacs -nd -batch -l /var/obj/pkgsrc/editors/xemacs/work/xemacs-21.4.24/src/../lisp/update-elc.el

Started under gdb(1) I get

(gdb) run

and xemacs appears to be stuck in what looks like a malloc(3) wrapper

<snip from gmalloc.c>
   1175 /* Allocate an array of NMEMB elements each SIZE bytes long.
   1176    The entire array is initialized to zeros.  */
   1177 __ptr_t
   1178 calloc (__malloc_size_t nmemb, __malloc_size_t size)
   1179 {
   1180   __ptr_t result = malloc (nmemb * size);
   1182   if (result != NULL)
   1183     (void) memset (result, 0, nmemb * size);
   1185   return result;
   1186 }

Building with "-Os" or "-O1" via a file gets me over this hang, but the resulting xemacs then fails compiling an elisp file further down the package build:

Compiling /var/obj/pkgsrc/editors/xemacs/work/xemacs-21.4.24/lisp/bytecomp.el... While compiling toplevel forms in file /var/obj/pkgsrc/editors/xemacs/work/xemacs-21.4.24/lisp/bytecomp.el:
  !! Invalid read syntax ((")"))
>>Error occurred processing /var/obj/pkgsrc/editors/xemacs/work/xemacs-21.4.24/lisp/bytecomp.el:
Invalid read syntax: ")"
*** [update-elc.stamp] Error code 1

Building with "-O0" completes the package build successfully, as does (surprise!) building with "-O3". Both binarieas work fine.

The "-fno-optimize-strlen" hack applied by editors/emacs2{5,6} (on gcc v5, editors/emacs2{1,2] just build with "-O0") did not make a difference for xemacs.

Anything else I could check or provide? Any insights?
