I tried this before and adnslogres works without any issue. The problem 
(Bus error / core dump) is only with dns-terror command and only if it 
find some IP address in the log. core dump when trying to resolve this 
IP. If log doesn't contain any valid IP dns-terror doesn't crash.

It is the same on all 10.2 machines. All machines have fastresolv 
package from the same poudriere build.
Machine with 8.4 i386 works fine (fastresolv is also build in poudriere)

I don't know how can I debug it with truss / ktrace / gdb.
