What version of NetBSD are you running, and on which platform ?
Your cc1 errors let me believe you have a hardware problem, maybe bad RAM,
or a failing CPU fan.
As for the -current sources, these won't build out of the box on a
1.5.x system. Read the UPDATING file for infos. If your hardware is
supported by the new build system, use build.sh, it'll avoid most of
the pain upgrading from sources.
