By the way you don't really need to use the cvsup package anymore, as there
is now the csup command that is part of FreeBSD. Regarding the core dumps,
maybe you should tried running portsclean -PLD to remove old packages,
libraries and distfiles from your system.If you can reproduce easily the
core dumps, maybe you can find which libraries causes the processes to crash
