Debian Sarge was installed on both machines, so I am not sure the
problem lies here.

The OS is Debian Sarge, the C compiler is the default one, gcc 3.3.5.
The Linux kernel is different (it shouldn't be important here, no ?),
2.6.16 from Debian Backports on the Pentium Pro where erlang works,
2.4.27 debian one on the Dell Powerdge.

Ok --disable-hipe solved the problem. Thanks for your help.

I still don't understand why this problem only happens on that machine.
Both machines are Debian Sarge without modification except  the kernel
for the Pentium Pro machine.
