Well, I think I dug myself into a hole.

I'm running on an Mac SE/30 w/20M of ram and an NFS-mounted /usr. I was
halfway through compiling the new sources (a three-day process!) when
something died. I think it was tcsh, because that's who dumped core. I
can't get anything working any more. 

I decided to try to untar all of the 1.2 binaries again, and things
started to compile again. However, nothing I do has brought "install" back
to life. I either get "Signal 11" or I get a simple "Segmentation fault."
Either I don't know how to use the BSD gdb (very likely) or I need to
compile with -g (even more likely) because I can't backtrace the problem.

Oh, and inetd, syslogd, and cmp dump core while I'm booting up.

Can anyone help?
