First, put WITH_DEBUG=absolutely in /etc/make.conf.  This will cause all
ports that are built to have debug symbols.  I believe you need to save
the /usr/ports/*/[portname]/work directory after installing, so don't do
a make clean until you've archived that somewhere.

Then, ensure the sysctls in the kernel are all frobbed to allow coredumps.
kern.coredump: 1
kern.sugid_coredump: 1

Then, make sure the www user has write access to wherever it's trying to
dump to.  Personally, I prefer to tweak kern.corefile to be
/usr/local/corefiles/%N.%P.core.  I can then ensure that directory exists
and that all users have write access to it (probably not the best idea
on a production server, however)

>From there, you should be getting usable coredumps.
