Now it bootstraps in less than 20 minutes (before, more than an hour).
Also, some strange bootstrap failure (which were solved simply changing

The build with GCC 4 series (before with my own build of gcc 4, now with
cygwin gcc4) is very stable.

Sincerely, the only crash I see is with tar files [1], but, in these

possible (and surely) I do not see other bugs.

with the annoying G_SLICE...

...and yes, a maintainer would simplify our life of Emacs users,
