Same here. No clue on the aborts or the SIGSYS. That's because
I don't watch my portupgrades. It looks like it's time to run
``script'' and capture stuff.

I'm pretty sure that firefo and most everything build without
-O3. I'll double-ck. Anyway, if binaries crash, it should't
cause the server to power-cycle. If it *is* heat, maybe we can
use a fan from one of my junk Kayaks... .
