Compile problems in Slackware

Hi there.

Has anyone experienced problems when compiling Samba? I always get stuck 
with an "internal compiler error" at the file smbpass.o.

The system is Slackware 3.4.0 (still the current release), with 
kernel 2.0.33 and GCC, I checked it with Samba 1.9.18p8 and 1.9.18p7.

How to get the error:

Install Slackware 3.4.0
Extract samba-1.9.18p8.tar.gz
edit samba-1.9.18p8/source/Makefile (uncomment lines for Linux w/ Shadow 
support - line numbers 209-210)
run make

you get:
Using CFLAGS = -O -DSMBLOGFILE="/usr/local/samba/var/log.smb" 
-DWEB_ROOT="/usr/local/samba" -DLOCKDIR="/usr/local/samba/var/locks" 
-DCODEPAGEDIR="/usr/local/samba/lib/codepages" -DWORKGROUP="WORKGROUP" 
-DDRIVERFILE="/usr/local/samba/lib/printers.def" -DLINUX -DSHADOW_PWD 
-DFAST_SHARE_MODES        -DSMB_PASSWD="/usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd" 
Using LIBS =  -lshadow
Compiling smbpass.c
cc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 6
make: *** [smbpass.o] Error 1

I doubt it's the hardware since the same happens on twototally different 
machines (but both running Slackware 3.4.0)

Any ideas?
