Does this one go to database@ or ports@

FreeBSD 6.1 RELEASE (i386) considered threadsafe with Postgresql 8.1.3.
I ran 8.1.2 without any noticable effects but after upgrading from 5.4
to 6.1 by means of making world (make buildworld; make kernel; reboot;
rm -rf /usr/obj/*; make buildworld; shutdown now; mergemaster -p; make
installworld; mergemaster -i; sync; reboot; make kernel; reboot)

I have had segmentation faults (signal 11) of conftest whenever i try to
build it from ports. My local ports and src tree is the same as the one
distributed with 6.1 RELEASE (from 6.1 RELEASE CD)

I built world with -O2 -pipe and kernel with -O2 -pipe. kernel is not
generic but instead i run my own configuration (included). In
/etc/make.conf i chose not to build games and shared docs.

I'm fairly certain the memory chips are ok after a few rounds of memtest86.
