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.
