I used the 6.5.18f/7.4 setup and had similar troubles.
I then tried gcc3.x and had the same problems. Sometimes
it will die at the dot-locking step and other times it will
compile but ./go will bus-error given (run (ls)). Somehow, magically,
I did get it to work and I am not sure what I did, but it was with gcc.
I can possibly tarball it if you need it.
Also note, If I recall correctly, I used the same machine to compile
s48 0.57 with no troubles.
I have a 6.5.16/7.3+patches box that I haven't tried yet, perhaps
it will work better.
There are a couple tips on this page for getting portable packages
to play nice on IRIX:
