Yoics! Just upgraded and cc is (mostly) bus-error-ing on buildworld.

I have them all installed, but none are used by the build
process.  My make.conf is relatively clean.

I did too at first.  Compiler crashes are usually "fix the
hardware" problems.  I'm not so sure any more: I restored /boot
and /usr/{not local or home} from backup from about a week ago,
and using that compiler on the same hardware, I was able to get a
build and install to complete without problem. Heisenbug
somewhere, perhaps? The other hit against the hardware problem
suggestion is that the failure was in specific, repeatable places
in certain system source files.  I could compile a chunk of my
own code without problems, though.

I'm now on:
FreeBSD duncan.reilly.home 9.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT #0: Mon May 31 02:39:59 EST 2010     root at duncan.reilly.home:/nb/obj/nb/src/sys/DUNCAN  amd64

based on a csup from the australian mirror from yesterday morning
(or perhaps Sunday night), and it all seems to be back to normal.

Very odd.
