What are those tar files? where did you gett hem from?  Emacs is
distributed in 2 archives, not 3:

   emacs-21.1.tar.gz
   leim-21.1.tar.gz

Sounds like it dies trying to realize the default face, but with so
many "???"s floating around, it's hard to know what's the problem,
exactly.  Could you please look around in set_lface_from_font_name and
see which of the variables causes the crash, and why?

Perhaps you could install GDB on that machine and use it; the file
.gdbinit in the src directory defines several useful commands for
debugging Emacs.
