The patch is on http://lhpca.univ-lyon1.fr/axp, it actually consists
in borrowing the "dumping code" of emacs.  

Altough the one I compiled 8 months ago was working fine, I was unable
to recompile a working xemacs with the current development packages
(gcc,binutils,libc...). I got the same kind of errors than others
reported on this list. And the older binary is not perfectly stable
with the new libc (maybe it is normal for [x]emacs to have some
problems with a C library different than the one it was compiled with,
that's why I tried to recompile it).
