I've managed to build and install (using checkinstall) an GNU Emacs 25.1 Debian package on 16.04, but on 16.10 for some unknown reason the compilation fails (at the make stage) giving the truncated output:

To be clear I ran:

./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-x-toolkit=gtk2 && make

and it was at the make stage that the build failed. I did run sudo apt-get build-dep -y emacs24 before running these commands.

EDIT: I can confirm that this segmentation fault occurs even when the --with-x-toolkit=gtk2 option is substituted with --with-x-toolkit=gtk3.

This is reported as http://debbugs.gnu.org/24682. A workaround is to use ./configure CFLAGS=-no-pie .
