Comment (by gk):

 It turns out this is GCC 6 related. Mozilla provided patches in bug

 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1269317 and

 which fixed the problem. They did not get backported to ESR45/Aurora,
 though, as they caused other build bustages, with MSVC and while doing
 builds for Android. We could think about trying to backport those fixes
 ourselves but builds with GCC 6 still seem to be broken until


 gets fixed. Thus, this will be too unstable to get into 6.5. We should aim
 for Tor Browser 7.0 earliest for GCC 6. Unfortunately, this means EMET
 support (#13893) will need to wait for another while :(
