NetBSD 7.0 i386 builds are consistently segfaulting generating phar.php
Example build log:

(Sorry for reporting a bug against 7.1.3, I didn't notice as I was experimenting, and this is in an extremely slow VM - I don't see relevant changes in 7.1.4)

We have some local modifications to the package, you can view them here:
(None of them touch deep PHP internals)

A backtrace of such a segfault is:

(gdb) core ./work/php-7.1.3/php.core

Core was generated by `php'.

I personally attempted to build the package in qemu-system-i386, using GCC 4.8.5.

I've made the following change that made me able to build it:

--- configure.orig      2017-04-11 15:37:37.000000000 +0000

Disabling the use of a global register for i386 (I think).

I don't have a rationale for it, I just found it unbelievable that such a thing works, and disabling it did the trick.

This may be a GCC bug if you believe it should work.
