While doing a "make build" on a Macintosh SE/30 (8MB phys/32MB swap, 1.0A
from around 02/15) I got this:

cc -O -DNLS -DYP -DLIBC_SCCS -DSYSLIBC_SCCS -I/usr/src/lib/libc/include
/usr/src/lib/libc/stdio/fgetc.c -o
Segmentation fault - core dumped
*** Error code 139

Is that how "out of memory" is reported on a system or is there something
else wrong?

I usually see 5-6MB of swap used from a "pstat -s".  Sometimes it goes up
to 12-16MB during a compile.

After, I did something like "csh; unlimit; make build" and it completed
and installed without errors.

Out of curiosity, does it take everyone else three to four days to do a
"make build"? :-)
