This log is line-wrap damaged, but in all cases it's erlc that SIGBUSes.
I don't have any Debian boxes, but R10B-7 builds fine for me on
a) SPARC/Solaris9, gcc-4.0.1
b) x86/Linux (Fedora Core 4), gcc-4.0.1
c) PowerPC/OSX 10.3.9, gcc-4.0.1

and I've successfully built similar versions on PowerPC/Linux (YDL4).

Since the Debian issues occur on multiple architectures, I suspect that
Debian's toolchain, i.e., its glibc+binutils+gcc combo, is busted.

Does R10B-6 build OK in the same environment(s)?
