There is nothing special about progress.c, you can see it compiled in
the autobuilds, e.g.
Just search for 'progress'.

How do you build? I do the following when building from Git:

export CC=xlc

- If 'make' is not GNU Make in your $PATH then use 'gmake' or
'/opt/freeware/bin/make MAKE=/opt/freeware/bin/make'
- If you build from a tarball instead of Git then skip the
'./buildconf' stage (just check if there's a 'configure' script there
already, if it is then skip './buildconf')

If it fails with internal error then there's something fishy with the
compiler installation on your system.
