I've seen the same thing, and worse: I've seen a machine *hang* on
trying to compile floppy.c. Twice. In quick succession...

And *that* seems to be the problem - at least, when the sysadm in
question downgraded to a non-`p' version of gcc, the compiles
started working again. YMMV of course.

Hope that helps,
