Mandrake uses pgcc which is basically more or less experimental
(why they do so for the minimal performance gain in the common case is beyond
me). The pgcc FAQ more or less states that you shouldn't be compiling the
kernel with it.

Try getting egcs-1.1.2 (the one in RH 6.x should be ok with mandrake) and you
should be fine. Or better yet ditch mandrake completely.
