My sparc is falling apart from last upgrade of ports

Hi Marko

I've had the same with ports/dns/unbound. I suspected an issue with  
the compiler, but marius@ commented:

There are also a few other cases in which a program gets killed with
SIGILL, f.e. when the stack overflows due to an infinite recursion
in the program. Actually, such bugs are more likely to hit than
compiler or OS bugs.
I'd suggest to build unbound with debugging symbols and to obtain
a backtrace in order to get an idea what the actual problem could



Maybe the same applies to your situation. I didn't build unbound with  
debugging symbols ever since and worked with bind instead, but I guess  
with php you're a bit stuck in terms of alternatives.
