Ooops.  I'm sorry -- I misread your e-mail.  You cvsuped ports to
HEAD, which is correct, and not the system as I seemed to have accused
you of doing.  Apologies.

I'm afraid that means the bad hardware theory is prime suspect.  It
does sound like you've blown a memory chip or some such.  You can try
running a few passes of memtest86 -- see http://www.memtest86.com/ --
which will confirm the failure if it finds anything wrong.  Swap out
memory sticks to see if you can isolate the problem.

What I said about 5-CURRENT and the various releases in my previous
messages is correct, but irrelevant.  However, once you've got your
system running stably again, do think about cvsup'ing and upgrading to
5.2.1-RELEASE-p4 (which you can do in a sing make buildworld cycle
from 5.2-RELEASE I should think, as they are both taken from the
RELENG_5_2 branch).  There have been some nasty security bugs
announced recently, and 5.2.1 was released in part because of some
nasty (non-security) bugs in 5.2.
