What version of FreeBSD 10?
Are you running amd64 or i386?

>/usr/local/lib/squeak/4.10.2-2614/squeakvm /usr/local/lib/squeak/Squeak4.3.image

I presume you mean /usr/local/bin/squeak /usr/local/lib/squeak/Squeak4.3.image

I can't reproduce this after building squeak-4.10.2_2 from ports on a
5-month old FreeBSD 10-stable/amd64.

Does squeak work if you compile it yourself?
If you debug the corefile, what is the offending instruction, register
contents and a backtrace?
