Well.. cc said "fatal signal 11" I just assumed the mmu was saying "nothing

I'm running the snapshot right now.. I just compiled and booted a new kernel
from current about 4 days ago.. I got this while doing a make build of the
world. I typed make again, and it happily continued on it's merry way. I'll
keep building and let you know if I can get it to happen again.
I used to get fatal signal 11's all the time under i386.. It's incredibly
annoying.. I usually assume it means it hit the ulimit somewhere, and bombed.
Normally if I just make again, it picks up where it left off and goes on it's
