The problem persisted regardless of whether there was a
/etc/nsswitch.conf file so I spent some time and think I have it
figured out. I have mail/squirrelmail installed which depends on
lang/php4 which in turn depends on security/php4-mhash. mhash was
trying to use the libpthread.so. At one point this machine ran CURRENT
but I reverted back to 5.2.1. I had an old libpthread.so which mhash
linked against. The crash was apparently confusion between the
different threading libraries. I had to remove the libpthread and setup
a libmap.conf to use libthr.so.
Now httpd survives a HUP signal like it was meant to.
