Thank you ! As it is, I did intensive memory testing on my PC (thanks
for the hints) without any errors coming up; then I finally succeeded:
your mail got to me about one hour after having solved the problem.
Everything compiles fine as long as the "-fno-fast-math" flag is ADDED to
RPM-OPT's; just removing the "-ffast-math" flag isn't sufficient.

gcc-3.0.1 -I. -I../../src/include -I../../src/include -I/usr/local/include
-DHAVE_CONFIG_H -mieee-fp -D__NO_MATH_INLINES  -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer
-pipe -mcpu=pentiumpro -march=i586 -fno-fast-math -fno-strength-reduce
did the trick.

I don't know if this is an issue with amd k6II processor or with mandrake
8.1. Anyway it was an interesting experience.
