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
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1269319

 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

 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1232696

 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 :(
