"v8_context_snapshot_generator" is not a FreeBSD message but a
program in chromium's source code, for example:

Its comments before in main (int argc, cha** argv) { . . . } are:

// This program takes a snapshot of V8 contexts and writes it out as a file.
// The snapshot file is consumed by Blink.
// Usage:
// % v8_context_snapshot_generator --output_file=<filename>

My guess is that any actual error report but what happened to
v8_context_snapshot_generator is earlier and that "FAILED:
v8_context_snapshot_generator" is a later consequence of
earlier activity.

You may need to expose the log file.
