I get the following error trying to compile IP masquerading on my alphastation 200 4/233 with 48 megs of ram. I got this error on kernels 2.1.126-2.1.131

make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux/net/ipv4'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -D__SMP__ -pipe -mno-fp-regs -ffixed-8 -mcpu=ev5 -Wa,-mev6 -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c ip_masq.c

gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 6

[root@mustang linux]# gcc --version
egcs-2.90.27 980315 (egcs-1.0.2 release)

I know I'm using egcs, but gcc doesn't compile for me.

Is this a known problem?

The line number is the } at the end of the ip_masq_hash function.

I tried removing optimization, but that didn't help. 2.1.126 compiled without support for ip masquerading.
