Does running 'make V=1' reveal more errors? Or maybe you could check 
bootstrap.dict-console.log or some other console.log files if they are 
created for some more clues whay it fails.

Can you try with gcc 4.x? 5.x could be stricter that might cause problems 
but of course best would be if that could be fixed.
