gcc 4.3.0 from current core freezes when building ruby1.9 and gcc-devel from AUR.

I tried to build ruby1.9 (see, but gcc freezes on file parse.c. I hoped, that some bug in gcc was fixed in gcc-devel version and tried to build it from AUR with current gcc. But it froze too.

It builds fine here, but the compilation of parse.c takes nearly 3 minutes on this box with 100% CPU usage on one core (E6750, 8GB memory, x86_64).
