"Internal compiler error"

Dear Maintainers of GNU C++,

The compiler informs me I should submit a bug report.  I looked on the
web under "frequently reported bugs", etc, but could find no mention of
the rather mysterious "Internal compiler error".

Here's what happened:

c++ -c  -DLINUX -DWant_c_files -I. -I../include -I/d/bh3/home/shawley/bbh_grace/include  -I/usr/local/include  -DLINUX -DWant_c_files -DIO_RNPLIO  -DSTDC_HEADERS=1 -DHAVE_STRDUP=1 -DHAVE_ATEXIT=1   -DLINUX -DF77_HAS_SYSTEM -DF77_HAS_CHDIR -DHAVE_LIBVS=1 -

ACEDistribution.cpp: In method `ACEDistribution::ACEDistribution(int, BBoxList &)':
ACEDistribution.cpp:30: Internal compiler error.
ACEDistribution.cpp:30: Please submit a full bug report.
ACEDistribution.cpp:30: See <URL: http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/faq.html#bugreport > for instructions.
make: [ACEDistribution.o] Error 1 (ignored)

I'm running GNU c++ version 2.95.2 (19991024) under Mandrake Linux 6.1 (full 
installation) on one of the front end nodes of the 64-node vn cluster at 
University of British Columbia
(Each node has dual PIII 450 MHz processors and 512 MByte of RAM.)

Attached is a copy of the source file ACEDistribution.cpp
However, there are many, many include files used for this file.  I can send
a complete configurable distribution upon request, or you can download 
the distribution via anonymous FTP from  
(then "./configure ; cd src; make" )
We have no trouble installing using the SGI compilers on IRIX 6.2 or using
the Portland Group compilers on Mandrake Linux 6.1.

For further information, please contact me or 
Matthew Choptuik:  matt@laplace.physics.ubc.ca
  (Matt would know, e.g. the operands used for "configure" when the compiler
   was installed)

Best wishes,
Scott Hawley
