What's happening is that in this pipeline in convert
eval 'cat ../../../src/texk/web2c/web2c/common.defines
../../../src/texk/web2c/pdftexdir/pdftex.defines pdftex.p      |
./web2c/web2c -htexmfmp.h -t -cpdftexcoerce      | ./web2c/fixwrites
-t pdftex   | ./web2c/splitup -i -l 11500 pdftex   '
the first web2c segfaults.

gdb gives this:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00002b62d7b2a20c in vfprintf () from /lib64/libc.so.6
(gdb) bt
#0  0x00002b62d7b2a20c in vfprintf () from /lib64/libc.so.6

193                               my_routine);
(gdb) p my_routine
$1 = "closefilesandterminate\000ge", '\0' <repeats 74 times>

Most likely some limit in web2c is reached...
