Default segfault during gcc-version-check w/ 8756 drivers on amd64 system?

Running on the latest Kanotix (Debian sid) w/ latest updates (including Xorg 7.0).

During the install, I get a segfault:
[13158] segfault at 000000000000000000 rip 000000000000000000 rsp 00007fffffc336e8 error 14

cat /proc/version gives me:
Linux version 2.6.16.8-slh64-smp-1 (root@x2-4200) (gcc version 4.0.3 (Debian 4.0.3-1)) #1 SMP Wed Apr 19 01:12:27 CEST 2006


cc -dumpversion gives me:
4.0.3


Nothing useful in the nvidia log:
---------
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".
-> gcc-version-check failed:
----------


I extracted all the files in the .run file, found the gcc-version-check.c file and did this:
$ cc gcc-version-check.c
$ BLAH=`cat /proc/version`
$ echo $BLAH
Linux version 2.6.16.8-slh64-smp-1 (root@x2-4200) (gcc version 4.0.3 (Debian 4.0.3-1)) #1 SMP Wed Apr 19 01:12:27 CEST 2006

$ a.out "$BLAH"
The compiler used to compile the kernel matches the current compiler (gcc 4.0)

so if I compile this by hand and run it, it thinks the version matches and the gcc-version-check passes w/o any segfaults.

Any suggestions on what I can try next? :-P
