Ah, yes, the infamous page_alloc problem.  We've narrowed it down to be a
bug in the Haifa scheduler in egcs (pretty vague, I know).  I'm testing
the latest snapshot right now to see if it exhibits the same behaviour or
not.  For now, recompile egcs with the --disable-haifa switch and it
should compile just fine.

Someone on the list has revised RPMs for this, fyi, but I'm not sure who.
