[vtkusers] Compiling error under Redhat 6.2

i also get these filthy internal compiler errors all the time, its horrific.

i am using mandrake 8.2 and the standard mandrake non-standard 
gcc 2.96 compiler, but i have the same problem with gcc 3.0.4. I 
really havent had too many other problems with gcc 2.96, but until 
i tried 3.0.4 i thought it might have been a 2.96 problem. I will give 3.1
or 3.2 a go soon, and i will then hope that i have seen my last internal 
compiler error...

generally when i get such internal compiler errors, it seems by that time 
my whole computer is bollocksed up... if i try to continue the VTK make 
it will fail again with the same internal compiler error at the exact same 

But if i then do a re-boot, and re-start the make it will continue happily 
for some time until the next internal compiler error. I usually get 2 or 3 
internal compiler errors before the VTK make is complete.

This problem happens with VTK 4.0, and VTK CVS, and it has also 
made compiling the Glasgow Haskell Compiler a horror.

I have been assuming its possibly a hardware problem, like a few 
unreliable memory bytes which dont really cause too many problems 
unless i give my box a good workout by compiling something rather large 
like VTK or GHC -- but...

does anyone else out there get any of these rotten internal compiler 

im really really sick of them... compiling VTK is not a quick and simple 
process even if things go smoothly, but when you start it compiling and 
then go to bed expecting to wake up to a brave new world of improved 
VTK ...  and then in the morning you find the compilation died after an 
hour and there are several hours of compilation left to go after a reboot
it makes you want to pull your hair out.

argh !
