The problem is with gcc.  The internal compiler error is caused by
gcc, and often it's related to hardware issues.  Remove the source and
build directories and try to build binutils again.  See if it always
fails at this spot.  If it seems to be more random, then you probably
have hardware issues.

memtest86 (ttp:// can help you test your memory. 
Maybe there's an excessive heat buildup when the processor is really
churning (like when you use a compiler on a big package).
