This is a known issue. Same here with RHEL 5.4. The short story is
that the gcc 4.1.2 and 4.4.0 shipped with RHEL 5.4 are just too old.

Here's the reply from Mike Pall, the author of LuaJIT:

    I'm sorry, but I cannot reproduce this with the GCC I have here:
     gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) 4.4.3

    It looks like this is either a GCC bug with unwind frame
    generation or a problem with the exception handling in the libgcc
    shipped with your system. I suggest to look for related bug
    reports in the vendors database.

    Or better yet: upgrade to a modern distribution. :-)

    In this case I suspect the problem is with the installed on your system.

    Caveat: replacing this library may screw up the whole OS!
    Use LD_LIBRARY_PATH for testing.

    I had no problems with GCC 4.x on earlier Debian or Ubuntu
    installations. The x64 port even worked with GCC 3.4 at one time.

    Sorry, but I'm not going to install Red Hat to debug their
