I discovered the same problem here for a P4-1.7Ghz with -stable.
First thing I discovered: this only happens if you have "-pipe" in your
CFLAGS in /etc/make.conf. It seems something with pipe handling is broken
on these fast machines, which makes cc fail.
Currently I'm trying to figure out which commit brought that in. Probabilty
is high that it has to do with ipfilter, but I'm not quite sure.
Definitively it is not a problem local to Brian.
