I have a second machine with the same GCC version, and it will compile successfully.

What's weird is that I can mount that second machine's file system on the first
machine, chroot into it, and build fine - so it's not the hardware or the
kernel, but some other library, program, or header included.

I've also established that trivial programs will compile.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2007-05-30 08:11:46 EDT
Run rpm -V to check cpp, gcc, glibc?
The preprocessed source you attached compiles just fine here with the same
gcc version.
Is it reproduceable on the file you attached?
You can install gcc-debuginfo, rerun the command with -v and cut'n'paste
the cc1 invocation, then rerun it under gdb and see where it crashed, retry
a few times to see if it is always the same spot.
Comment 4 david.hagood 2007-05-30 21:53:01 EDT
Somehow cc1 got corrupted... I begin to wonder if it isn't time to retire this
machine, as I've had this sort of thing happen before....
