Eek, yeah!

In order to view the differences in both build logs, compiler options
which are being used, etc...

Maybe you could run with --runtestopts="-p 557" in both
cases '--enable-debug' and '--disable-debug'.

This would only execute test case #557, while allowing the build logs
to be sent to the autobuild page.

If that test case core-dumps, then running with
--runtestopts="none" in both cases '--enable-debug' and
'--disable-debug' which will prevent any test from running.

This seems like a configuration issue, but changes to or
acinclude.m4 near the jul-10 date you mention are dated: jul-02,
jul-04 and jul-16.
