I think that's the same problem that was previously reported by Michael
Alan Dorman (signal 6 when compiling qmail). Signal 6 is raised by
abort() during some optimisation passes when a condition that should
never happen is detected. Signal 11 (SIGSEGV) happens when such a
condition is not detected... :-(
Thanks for reporting, I'll take a look (I've already almost tracked down
this problem in the qmail case, but the more information the better).
BTW, that `wrong' condition that occurs here is not only exposed by the
optimiser, but introduced there as well, so the workaround is to compile

It's a (non-debian-related) gcc problem.
