make == fork bomb ???

    Andreas, do me a favor and check your /tmp filesystem.  Do a 'df -i' and
    see if its either full or if it has run out of inodes.  Do an 'ls /tmp'
    and remove any extranious files or directories, especially any with a
    'make*' prefix.

    I'm also thinking it might help to do a ktrace -i of the make command
    that is causing the problem.  Something like:

    cd (wherever you would normally cd to do the make)
    ktrace -f /home/kt.out -i make ...

    And then put the /home/kt.out file up so we can fetch it.
