The second, TB 750 w/384 MB RAM, glibc 2.2.4, gcc 2.95.3 and kernel 2.4.10-ac12 failed the compile. Pretty strage, coz they use basically the same software. I wonder if it may be caused by the combination of an i686 platform and gcc 2.95.3 (the K6 is i586)...

Look in the makefile for the variables PROFILE and CFLAGS, then compile with make CFLAGS='whatever is in makefile less the -mno-ieee flag' PROFILE='whatever is in makefile less the -mno-ieee flag'

The problem is that the optimization string really doesn't work on i686 platform, although I had no trouble on my k6-2, my athlon chokes with a sig11.  By compiling withou the -mno-ieee flag it compiles fine.  I suppose one could patch it, but, it's easier to just pass flags on the make line.
