According to conventional wisdom, when gcc segfaults on a big
compilation job (e.g., the Linux kernel), it could be a sign of a
transient memory error; gcc exercises the RAM so much that the error
rate on a typical computer's memory chips can have a practical effect.

You can either buy more expensive RAM or run the build again and hope
for better luck.
