Yes it may be such kind of problem. If I remember well some version(s) of GCC had a problem that it emmited 686 insctuction even when it was commanded to compile for older CPU. Nowday nobody cares about CPUs with insctruction set less than 686 and it will get worse. Maybe you could try some debugging tool to find on what instruction it's failing.
EDIT: A quick look in IDA to LINKS.EXE doesn't show any occurence of mentioned instructions. Maybe it can be checked under DOSbox if it will run, set cputype=486 in config.
