In each of the 3 cases, I find a
/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg/pkg-static.core file

g1-252(9.3-S)[4] sudo file pkg-static.core
pkg-static.core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file Intel 80386, version 1 (FreeBSD), 
FreeBSD-style, from '-static'

Well, given it was a segmentation fault, it's not clear to me that
I'd be able to find much of value -- I'm way out of practice using
gdb, and by the nature of a segmentation fault (or what caused it,
anyway), something is pretty confused by the time the fault is

Err... no....  I have 5 system in total; 2 haven't failed because
I haven't tried to update them yet: if they fail, I don't have
access to email (or much of anything else); more critially, neither
does my spouse -- and I value domestic tranquility.

Of the 3 failures, 2 were on i386; one on amd64.

They are all running stable/9 @r269090 (and the 2 that I haven't
upgraded yet would normally be upgraded to that point before I start
messing with ports on them).

I'll be happy to provide any information about this that I can.
