5.3-RELEASE crashes during make buildworld (and other problems)

This machine runs 4.11-STABLE just fine. I can make buildworld all day.
Before that it ran Win2k for many months with no problems. For these
reasons, I do not suspect hardware at this point.
When I install 5.3-RELEASE it runs fine until...
When I attempt to cvsup to STABLE and run make buildworld (yes with and
without the -j) it crashes.
I am very bad at kernel debugging because FreeBSD 4 has (almost) always
been perfectly stable so I have read and re-read the handbook and I am
trying to get more information to the list.
So far in rc.conf I added:
chmod 700 /usr/crash
Then in /boot/loader.conf I added
Does this look reasonable?
What else should I do?
Meanwhile, I started the make buildworld again (right where it left off)
and I am waiting for it to crash.
You can find the dmesg and anything else I find at
While I was writing this the make buildworld failed and left me some
details which I put into a file named gcc-error-1 file at
Then I rebooted and went into X and soon I got
There is nothing in /usr/crash/
I cant find any files name vmcore anywhere.
I noticed that on the new 5.3-RELEASE SYSTEM if I do not have a
half-failed "make buildworld" I can install packages with pkg_add -r
whatever all day long and the machine (and KDE) runs fine.
