ouch. This sounds to me like some kind of hardware issue. I built the complete
2.0 release with -mcpu=ev56, installed it on one of my Miatas and built
several packages, beyond them KDE 3.3, xfce4 and several smaller things. I
didn't get any ICEs here. Maybe this 21264a machine has another chipset bug,
which is triggered by those CPU optimizations? The EV56 optimizations seem to
work in general.
