This started last night while I was portupgrading ruby and I got random
apps segfaulting, mostly gcc, so I suspected bad memory. I installed new
memory today, tried to buildworld. And *BAM* panic: bad pte
I'm still guessing that this is a hardware problem, and not software but
I'm not sure. If anyone can give me a clue I'd appreciate it.

First, a quick Google of "bad pte" turns up some ideas. Try disabling or
changing APIC and/or ACPI settings. Make sure your swap partition is
error free and has enough room. Google a bit more just on the
lists.freebsd.org site for several possibilities.
For hardware, you can try memtest86+ to check to make sure the new
memory is good. There are other stress tests you can run as well - I
usually use the ultimate boot CD for that stuff. Other possible problems
are faulty or too small power supply; too much heat on CPU, RAM, or
expansion boards; faulty expansion cards and/or components; or faulty
