Check your default resource limits (shell startup files & /etc/login.conf) and see whether coredumpsize is set to 0, maybe?  If you build and run:

% cat crash.c
#include <stdlib.h>

    char *bad = NULL;
    bad[0] = '1';
% cc -o crash crash.c
% ./crash
[1]    16550 segmentation fault (core dumped)  ./crash
% ls /cores
crash.16550.core you get this trivial program to dump core?
