I think this problem was answered in an earlier post.. Someone correct
me if I'm wrong, but the error you're getting is a combination of 2 errors.
you're getting make error 128, and you're hitting signal 11 errors as well.
128 + 11 = 139. Take a look at what error 128 is; perhaps it's listed in the
man page for make, or other documentation for it. as for sig11, the WWW page
may have changed addresses, but the last I saw it, you may want to take a look
at it has some good insights
into why you may be getting the error.

It may be a hardware problem.. but if it's not, please let me know, as
I'm going to be upgrading to Slackware 3.2 shortly. TIA!
