In my previous mail, I have quoted the two mails that describe the
problem. To be more specific I put, at the end of this mail, an extract
of my own experience for making gprolog from source distribution of
gprolog-1.2.16 under Linux Mandrake 9.0.

During the making process the first time that gplc tried to compile a
.pl (fd2c.pl) file it emits a "compilation failed" message. In fact its
pl2wam program used by gplc to compile .pl file which provokes a
Segmentation fault.

About the Mandrake's binary gprolog RPM for 9.0, I have proceed some
investigations and I have concluded that this version don't use ebp
register like I suggested in my previous mail (You can see in
/usr/lib/gprolog-1.2.13/include/gprolog.h at line 37  "#define
NO_USE_EBP 1"); therefore if you want to use every optimization of
gprolog, I recommend you to use the binary RPM available on The GNU
Prolog web site.
