Does it always fail on the same file? Or does it fail on random locations
which change every time you try?

If it fails and random locations and gets a little bit further everytime
you invoke "make" (or "") it is almost certainly a problem
with the memory in the box.

GCC is the best memory tester I know. It works much better than "memtest",
"memtestplus" and all the other tools.
