I just did this upgrade a few days to maybe a week ago with no problems.

Maybe it doesn't like your non-standard ports location? Maybe try

Since mine upgraded without problem I suspect there is nothing wrong with 
GCC, unless somehow it got broken on your machine. Make buildworld and make 
installworld will rebuild it. At any rate, I just ran a build on the 
www/qt4-webkit-4.6.1 port here as a test and it is building fine for me.

Another possibility is hardware, with the front runner being memory. If the 
process stops at random locations each time it is most likely hardware 
related. A hardware problem causing such a thing would also most likely show 
itself during a make buildworld as well. If it stops at the same place with 
the same error every time it is probably software related. And I suspect 
your non-standard ports tree location.
