FWIW, I am able to build it in a 64-bit only version of 14.1, but on a
multilib system it crashes and burns with the same issue as in the
original posting.

Does your multilib system have a lot of SBo packages?  Perhaps there
is some interaction between some package(s) that the OP and I have
installed.  If anyone is keen to do some binary search looking to see
when fontforge stops compiling, I'd be happy to supply the list of
packages I have on my system.  (But I can't do that myself any time in
the near future.)
