First of all, don't include adversisements or non-relevant attachments
or when posting to this list.
Second, reconfigure to not send in html format.
Third, set your mailer to wrap at 72 columns so we can read your message
without scrolling.

That said, it would appear that you have a hardware problem. There is
nothing in any build process that I've heard of that generates an interrupt.
