Is it a kernel panic? No information in /var/log/messages? And no
system dump in /var/crash?

Hmm... did you keep an eye on the memory allocation? Maybe the system
is running out of physical and swap memory due to a bug?

ISTR there were some issues with it in the past (?).

I know you don't want to hear that, because it probably means that you
have to rebuild your pkgsrc, but it might be the best to update to a
recent kernel. Either 5.1.2 or the upcoming 6.0. NetBSD4 is not really
known as a good release. ;)
