I have a K6 CPU that refuses to compile a (Linux) kernel. It does pretty
much everything else (no other high loads)
Installing cvsup-without-gui from ports is intensive, if  memory serves
well, cvsup is written in modula2, you are effectively building the
modula2 compiler in order to build cvsup. Either add from packages or
simply use csup. And run the memtest86 on your system as suggested until
it completes at least one - two passes.
