I was able to get around this by using gcc-4.4.6 instead of gcc-4.6.2.
In detail:

The SIGILL occured with this version of gcc:
$ gcc --version
gcc (Gentoo 4.6.2 p1.4, pie-0.5.0) 4.6.2

It doesn't happen on this version of gcc (I get to FILO at least):
$ gcc --version
gcc (Gentoo 4.4.6-r1 p1.0, pie-0.4.5) 4.4.6

So I guess gcc-4.6.2 is the culprit? I didn't test a newer version like
4.6.3 or 4.7.1.

It's working for me now so as a user I will just accept that I have to
use gcc-4.4.6, but please tell me if I can help fixing this issue.
