That appears to be an issue with a lack of memory in the environment you
are using, which is not the problem I was having.  My machine (presently
running stable/13, building chromium, gimp-app, kf5-extra-cmake-modules,
and wireshark using poudriere):

freebeast(13.1-S)[6] sysctl vm.vmtotal

This was based on the content of email messages (in this thread) from
Martin Waschbüsch, Moin Rahman, and Brooks Davis.

Specifically, the last-cited message:

I verified that the reversion was effective in resolving the issue
for me in stable/12 (and have subsequently also verified it for
stable/13), and reported the same, in case it helps others.
