I signed up for Amazon EC2 last night and managed to panic my FreeBSD
instance a couple times today while compiling security/libgcrypt out of 

The panics happen during the configure phase, and the last line I see 
before the panic is:

    checking whether mlock is broken...

report?  I have files in /var/crash as a result of the two panics at 
exactly the same place.
