Your R10B versions don't compile cleanly: there are several segmentation
faults while compiling the libraries. Didn't you notice them?

I suspect the two machines don't have the exact same libraries etc.

You're not saying anything about the OS, C compiler, or C library versions.
As a first step, configure R10B-10 with --disable-hipe and try rebuilding it.
If that makes R10B-10 work then it's an issue with your C libraries.
