Check your shell limits. ulimit -a will display them in bash. These
are often too small for big compiles, or massive edits of huge files
in Emacs, for example.
The one I hit with Emacs is the data seg size limit. You may be
hitting the vm size one.
In a root shell, you can fix these with ulimit -d 262144 and ulimit -v
Incidentally, does someone know where the default limits can be
configured in NetBSD 1.2.1? I'd like to increase some of them...
