I built a new Linux machine, and was trying to install R on it. I get the
message during the build:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/R-0.64.0/src/nmath'
gcc -g -O2 -I../include -I../../src/include  -c mlutils.c -o mlutils.o
gcc -g -O2 -I../include -I../../src/include  -c d1mach.c -o d1mach.o
gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 6
make[2]: *** [d1mach.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/R-0.64.0/src/nmath'
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/R-0.64.0/src'
make: *** [R] Error 1

I've built R on an older Linux system without trouble.
