It's a typo, should be:
root at eris samba3 # sysctl -a|grep kva
- when I had this a oouple of weeks back (on 5.2 release) it was because
I'd borked my make.conf so I effectively forkbombed the box everytime I tried
to build a port .... O_o
any chance you changed something similar in your networking?
(maybe a loop in your NAT rules or something?)
