Maybe. You dont say which version you are running so I have to guess.
Try raising your limits in bash with:

ulimit -d unlimited
ulimit -s unlimited

a few versions ago, this was a problem. Another was an alignment?
problem with mmap since found and fixed in the standard distribution.
This mmap thing froze the entire machine until fixed by P.B...

I am still stuck on bsd/os 2.1, and have no problems with the
tests that come with the source...
