1. Check you RAM with memtest86+.
2. Drop your CFLAGS to "-march=opteron -O2 -pipe". Extreme CFLAGS wont 
improve your performance anyway and I'm a bit suprised you're using such 
CFLAGS on a server.
3. You aren't supposed to use a x86 profile on a x86_64-pc-linux-gnu 
system. Change to an amd64 profile instead.
