Illegal instruction while compiling kernel!

Description of Problem:
When tying to compile kernel (2.4.5) gcc gives internal error due to a illegal instruction...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/src/linux
2. make <whatever>
Kernel image + modules
Processor: Cyrix 6x86MX
Standard kernel source (not from RPM)
Is it reproduceable and always on exactly the same file with exactly the
No... the place is sometimes different, but most of the time with the first file that gets passed through gcc.
It is always the same error, however.
Then you should check your hardware (RAM, CPU) because these are typical
symptoms of defective hardware.
