Yep.  This is caused by an ICE in the fortran compiler.  That is, if it's
the problem I think it is.  gcc-2.95.3 on NetBSD/sparc64 is, in many ways,
problematic.  If you look around pkgsrc, you'll see that I've added hacks
to some packages to get around this problem.  It would certainly be nice
to have this problem detected and handled in autoconf, but in the
meantime, you can try adding the standard hack to
pkgsrc/net/echoping/Makefile: CONFIGURE_ENV+=F77=${FALSE}

The other way to get around this is to use gcc3.  Might I suggest giving
NetBSD 2.0_BETA a try? ;)
