Is it reproduceable?
If yes (always the same segfault on the same file same line if given the same
arguments), then please attach here cpqarray.i (add -save-temps option to gcc),
otherwise it is most probably a hardware problem.

Hi,  I am experiencing this same problem when compiling my kernel in RedHat 7.2.
I also had the problem in RH7.1 even after implementing the patched rpms.  It
happens on different files at different times.  I get the same "Internal error:
Segmentation fault." error.  Typing 'make' again will usually allow me to
successfully compile the current file, but it will hang on a later file.  This
behavior isn't restricted to compiling the kernel; I have troubles compiling any
big project.  My compilers always worked fine in the past.

My machine is a K6 II 400MHz processor w/ 256MB ram.  I only have 133MB of swap,
(was going to change that after recompiling the kernel), which COULD be a
problem, but this same problem happens when I'm not memory stressed (i.e. not
running X, just at the command line).  I'd be happy to tell more if necessary.

Classic bad RAM chips 

Anyone finding this old bug with similar things

If the bug moves each recompile - > memtest86 your box.
