These notes may be ignored. It just means that function is too big to
store debug information in appropriate tables (C compiler thing).

This seems to be the real issue. If I had to guess it was OOM kicking in
and killing the compiler because GCC reached available memory limit on
your system. Do you have particular process quotas for memory? or maybe
your system is full of other processes atm? You may try to add swap to
your system, remove the quota or free some memory beforehand.
