Signal 11 usually means memory is gone screwy -- if you overclocked, you
overclocked too far. You should clock your CPU back down a bit if you
overclocked it any, you should slow your RAM timings down in BIOS, or you
should run a very comprehensive memory scanner on your machine to ensure
that all your memory is good.

Compiling the kernel traverses huge trees in memory, making a kernel compile
one of the best system sanity-checks I know about. Any wrong bits in there,
and then the compiler jumps to the wrong spot, etc.. and gives up with a
signal 11.

There is an entire signall 11 FAQ out there someplace, I forget where it is
