Also, with regards to "bad hardware": this is a multiprocessor server system
that's in use every day, it's got numerous inbuilt hardware failure-detection
mechanisms, so as soon as there's a CPU, memory or hard disk problem, the admin
(me) gets notified immediatley. And there are clearly not any warnings at all.
So, given all these self-tests (that even take almost ~5 minutes before the
actual system really boots up) I should actually be able to be reasonably sure
that this is no hardware problem at all.
You said you were able to build it on i686-linux-gnu, was this also an SMP
machine? I am really more than willing to take into consideration that this is
a local (software) problem (i.e. due to parts of the GNU toolchain being
outdated or whatever), nonetheless the previously mentioned google findings
suggest that it isn't a totally isolated issue at all.
