GIMP 2.6.1 make check fails - Illegal Instruction

Back with another GIMP 2.6 build problem. On a different machine this time- still Slackware 10.1.

'configure' and 'make' seem to work fine- but when I run 'make check', things go well for a while until I encounter this:

Making check in config
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/gimp-2.6.1/app/config'

I did recently upgrade my Slackware packages for gcc and glibc, installing the following:

* gcc-4.2.4
* gcc-g++-4.2.4
* glibc-i18n-2.7
* glibc-profile-2.7
* glibc-solibs-2.7
* glibc-zoneinfo-2.7

Could I have missed something to be causing this 'Illegal Instruction' error?

Just for fun, I did a 'make install' of GIMP- and it installed without problems- but upon running gimp-2.6, I'm once again greeted with the "Illegal Instruction" notice.

Any ideas??

FIXED. Solved this one shortly after posting again. Turns out my CFLAGS has -msse3 declared, yet sse3 is nowhere to be found in my /proc/cpuinfo. I removed it from CFLAGS and rebuilt GIMP and some of it's dependencies (just in-case) and it compiled- and works- just fine now.
