Yes, I got new memory, and the compilation dies in exactly the same
place. This is 32 Mb, before I had 64 Mb in it. There's absolutely no
difference, so I strongly suspect something else.
Chris Sekiya suggested a CPU overheating due to badly placed heatsink.
I'll give that a try.

If all else fails, it's time to get a new (old) machine :)

Thanks for your help
