This typically happens when changing the PHP configuration between builds but not calling configure / make clean in between.

Hi Johannes,

I doubt this is the case here. The Gentoo package system copies the entire 
source tree for each SAPI and starts from scratch in each one.

Also, this happens from the first SAPI compile. If you see the build log, you 
clearly see unpack -> configure -> make.

So I think this bug was closed a bit prematurely.

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a backtrace to see what is happening behind the scenes. To
find out how to generate a backtrace, please read for *NIX and for Win32

Once you have generated a backtrace, please submit it to this bug
report and change the status back to "Open". Thank you for helping
us make PHP better.

Well then maybe one of your patches is broken? You can also try running sapi/cli/php manually and try to have it segfault and provide a backtrace ...
