I saw an unresolved posting about this on port-xen:

HINT: You possibly need to raise your kernel's SEMVMX value to be at least
536. Look into the PostgreSQL documentation for details.
It wasn't unresolved, I just needed to recompile. The error message was
No amount of tweaking would fix it. A change occurred recently (last
month or so), probably to libc, that has required a lot of packages to
be recompiled. On some systems I've been better off doing pkg_delete
'*-*' and starting from scratch.
The other problem after recompiling was that the database could not be
accessed (another change apparently, something to do with the
timestamp/mod time) which required the database to be reconstructed.
I wouldn't hunt too hard as after updating kernel/userland, recompiling
everything and restoring the db, my system hasn't been so stable :)
