Most likely you ran out of memory or your hardware is broken (bad ram,
overheating box,...).

Take a look through the bug I've marked this as a duplicate of. 

If you can re-produce the problem in the *exact* same place let us know and
we'll happily look into your issue further.

In response to some e-mails I'll clarify:

An internal compiler error generally indicates hardware fault, which is usually
confirmed by the error happening in different places, ie, different source files
failing.  In this case it was Prefs.c . I want you to check to see if it failed
on a different source file.

I believe you also mentioned that setting 'minimal' fixed it - this could be a
fix for a number of reasons, most of them not changing my current evaluation of
the situation.
