Two ideas come to my mind:
1.) Your toolchain could be broken. If that is the case the error will always
    happen at the same spot (line 477 of "src/usr.bin/make/arch.c"). If
    that is the case download a 3.0_BETA or current snapshot from and install it, please.

2.) If the compiler dies at random locations your hardware is probably
    faulty. In my experience random GCC segfaults are definte sign
    for broken memory.
