scsi driver error on kernel compile

Hi All,

It has been a while since I've been on this mailing list. In fact I am
just visiting.

Can anyone give me a pointer as to why I might be having the following
difficulty in recompiling my kernel for ethernet support?

Seems to get hung-up on the scsi driver fairly consistently. My compiler
worked fine before, although it has been tarred an retarred (no punns
please :-) for backups between scsi and ide drives a few times. No
reason to think it is broken otherwise. Could try a reinstall of the
compiler I suppose, but I'd like to track down this 'signal 11' error:

gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-1.3.20/include -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -m486 -c -o
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-1.3.20/include -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -m486 -c -o sr.o
gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 11
make[2]: *** [sr.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-1.3.20/drivers/scsi'
make[1]: *** [sub_dirs] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-1.3.20/drivers'
make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

It is gcc version 2.7.0 - the one which comes with Slackware 3.0
