-current is likely to fail, as gcc 2.95 has no clue (yet) that NetBSD/i386
can be ELF.  I have started the work to get it ported into the codebase.

As to on 1.4, my guess is that (for i386 and sparc, anyway) the C and C++
compilers _should_ compile and work.  I give no guarantees for the rest....

This is highly unusual; it indicates that the C compiler got a SIGSEGV.
However, some of the support libraries are a little intensive on the
compiler; you wouldn't happen to have somewhat low process limits?
