If I am logged in on a FreeBSD machine with ssh.
And doing say a ./configure or make and I lose connection does that stop
what I was doing ?
In general, yes-- what happens is that a broken connection results in a hangup (HUP) signal being sent to the process group containing ssh, your shell, and whatever commands might have been running.
data get corrupted etc ?
Generally not. The point of the HUP signal is to allow processes to shut down cleanly. See "man nohup", "man signal"....
