Okay, so, I think you need to start from the beginning. A short while
back, I got the impression that build was crashing during bootstrap, i.e.
it was a core dump from temacs. This has nothing to do with emacs' tests,
which IIRC are not distributed with emacs source.

So, the problem is not "Build Emacs without Lisp" but "Emacs build fails
on Debian chroot S390x"?

If this is the case, then I think you have either a bug or an unsupported
platform. Probably the next best step is to submit a bug report.
