I encountered that funny out of memory / segfault crash during
textproc/icu build with 2015Q4 on CentOS 7 using gcc-4.9.3. This is a
known issue, see
. Attached is a patch on the pkgsrc tree that applies the fix and
enables the build to succeed for me.
Fun fact aside: A manual build using that compiler outside pkgsrc works
fine, only the build within the pkgsrc/buildlink environment triggers
that crash. I was not able to discern any obvious difference like
differing CFLAGS or such. Perhaps the combination with some pkgsrc tool
being picked up instead of a system on.
