Are you running FreeBSD i386 or amd64?
Is the compiler using /tmp and /tmp is in root partition?
Maybe try having a seperate partition for /tmp, might keep
root partition from getting trashed?

Maybe try root partition on SATA, everything else on SCSI
and see what happens.
If the system supports a RS-232 console, you could capture panic
message that way. Or aim a video camera at the screen.
