The CFLAGS=-O2 workaround also seems to (mostly) work building
www/chromium. There was only one segfault compiling chromium,
restarting make permitted a successful installation. Previously
make segfaulted several times per day, seemingly independent of
swap usage, so it doesn't seem related to VM pressure.

Unfortunately that version of chromium had a (now corrected)
libray bug so it wouldn't run. www/chromium is now up to date
and make is trying again.

There's a bit more detail at
in case anybody's interested.
