There are special considerations for a variety of this system which
is known as the ``Yellow Dog Linux'': Emacs may crash during
dumping. To solve this, edit the header file src/m/macppc.h in the
Emacs distribution, and remove the "#if 0" and "#endif" directives
which surround the following block near the end of the file:
#if 0 /* This breaks things on PPC GNU/Linux ecept for Yellowdog,
even with identical GCC, as, ld. Let's take it out until we
know what's really going on here. */
/* GCC 2.95 and newer on GNU/Linux PPC changed the load address to
0x10000000. */
#if defined __linux__
#if __GNUC__ > 2 || (__GNUC__ == 2 && __GNUC_MINOR__ >= 95)
#define DATA_SEG_BITS 0x10000000
#endif /* 0 */
After that, reconfigure and rebuild Emacs. It should now build
