3.8.3 build error, compiler segfault

Greetings all;

Trying to build a working 3.8.3 kernel, on a *buntu 10.04-4 LTS system here

My usual 'makeit' script didn't report any errors at the end, but the end
trace on screen was obviously incomplete.

Adding a few more echo's to the script, and verifying that every line in it
was terminated with " && \\r" I reran it, and see an error that should
have stopped it right there, but did not:
CC net/ipv6/icmp.o
net/ipv4/icmp.c:1115: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.4/README.Bugs> for instructions.
make[2]: *** [net/ipv4/icmp.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [net/ipv4] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
CC drivers/md/bitmap.o
as can be seen it kept marching, the error never made it to bash.

Much later in the screen trace:
LD net/ipv6/built-in.o
make: *** [net] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
CC drivers/of/of_mdio.o

And eventually the screen trace ends with the report from the 'time -p'
from the invocation "time -p ./makeit"

I am using ccache, and cc -v says:
gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5.1)

My major problem in trying to build a newer kernel that the 2.6.32-122-43-
rtai currently running is that at least 50% of the time I run a make
xconfig, the resultant .config saved has had the ext4 support, which this /
partition is, has been removed, so the boot fails with the can't find the
blkid of this partition error message.

Obviously I have more than one error, so how should I proceed?

The system is completely up to date for a 10.04-4 LTS install as of 2 or 3
hours ago.

Thank you.

Cheers, Gene
