perl causes kernel panic

Description of problem:
Bad: When compiling rrdtool-1.0.48 (as downloaded from rrdtool.org)
the kernel panics with a fatal exception during the compile (not
the ./configure) phase.
Bad: This happens everytime, even after errata updates as of 6/24/04.
Good: after a reboot, if I go into the same build directory and,
without doing a 'make clean', do a make I get a compile error without
a kernel panic.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a RHEL AS v3 update 2 system for AMD64
2. download rrdtool-1.0.48 from rrdtool.org
3. run configure script for rrdtool source, do not specify any
options to configure
4. run make
Actual Results: Kernel panics with a fatal exception error, and
mentions the perl executable in the dump screen.
Expected Results: rrdtool compiles without errors as it does on RHEL
v3 for i386.
The error I get after reboot from kernel panic, when I try to compile
again with doing a make clean as something
with "/usr/bin/ld: ../src/.libs//librrd_private.a(parsetime.o):
relocation R_X86_64_32 can not be used when making a shared object;
recompile with -fPIC
I can be contacted at email@example.com, or 847-735-5112. I would
love to get this fixed, much less help improve a RedHat product.
Please let me know if you need anything further.
You can close this bug ticket. Turned out there was a bad RAM DIMM.
