is essential to compile Emacs with flags suitable for debugging.
With GCC 4.8 or later, you can invoke 'make' with CFLAGS="-Og -g3".
With older GCC or non-GCC commpilers, you can use CFLAGS="-O0 -g3".
With GCC and higher optimization levels such as -O2, at least compile
with the -fno-crossjumping option in CFLAGS. Failure to do so may
make the compiler recycle the same abort call for all assertions in a
given function, rendering the stack backtrace useless for identifying
the specific failed assertion.
With GCC and higher optimization levels such as -O2, the
-fno-omit-frame-pointer and -fno-crossjumping options are often
essential. The latter prevents GCC from using the same abort call for
