This is bad news for you.  The build of gcc is done is three stages.
It then compares the stage2 build with the final build; and if it
is wrong then it stops.

Check that you are not using any optimization flags like CFLAGS.
Also do
gcc -v
in your Mandrake system and tell us what compiler you are using.
