For those looking for binaries I packaged this for fedora rawhide:
https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=903933

There are also copr builds for Fedora 25, EPEL 6/7
(i386, x86_64 and ppc64le):
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/mjw/valgrind-3.13.0/

These include some patches that might make it into the final 3.13.0:

- KDE#380397 s390x: __GI_strcspn() replacemenet needed
- valgrind svn 16437 Fix pub_tool_basics.h build issue with g++ 4.4.7.
- KDE#380200 xtree generated callgrind files refer to files without
             directory
- KDE#380202 Assertion failure for cache line size on aarch64
