Segfault during parrot "make" at r40248

I just updated to r40248, hoping to get an update that might fix a 
problem I've been seeing.

I did a:
 > make clean
 > perl
 > make.

The make ran through to the point where it fails on ln -sf 
blib/lib/ blib/lib/, and so I cp'ed it as 
usual. Then I did another

 > make

This time, the make didn't run to completion, but instead I got:

make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/win/Sources/parrot/compilers/tge'
.../../parrot ../../runtime/parrot/library/PGE/Perl6Grammar.pbc 
--output=TGE/Parser.pir TGE/
make[1]: *** [TGE/Parser.pir] Segmentation fault
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/win/Sources/parrot/compilers/tge'

It's not at all clear to me why this is happening, and it's recent. I 
did an svn update last evening and had no such problems.

FWIW: I'm running Ubuntu/andLinux over Windows XP, and the development 
directory is sitting on top of an NTFS partition (which is why ln -s 
fails, but doesn't really explain the segfault).
