This seems to be a real bug. There was a discussion on sparc64 Tinderbox
coredumps recently. I see the same problem when doing 'make universe'
about one third of the kernels or buildworlds fail with a make dumping
core in vfork() (according to gdb). I had no chance yet to try with
a make that uses fork() instead of vfork().
