    If it errors out in a different place each time you run the buildworld
    then signal 11's and signal 4's are almost always an indication of a
    hardware cpu or memory problem.  If your BIOS has the knobs you might be
    able to slow the machine down a bit to try to work around it.  Otherwise
    the only options are to replace the memory (which might or might not 
    solve the problem), or get a new machine.

Well, I'm thinking this machine may just get tossed.  I'll give 
memtest86 a go, but there's not much worth keeping on it anyway.  I just 
kept it around for testing out fun things (like DFly).  I do have 
another spare machine at home, but I won't be able to work with that one 
for a few months.
