I'm not entirely sure about the build daemons, but when i build it on
amd64, i definitely get no segmentation faults.  I suppose i can try
firing up an i386 builder and see if i can replicate the problem from
unstable directly.  have you tried to build the experimental package
against unstable yourself, or only on jessie?

ugh, right, that seems like something worth noting to Eric Dorland
(cc'ed), who is maintaining both automake and npth for debian, iirc.
