>Synopsis: System reset as an unprivileged user

System : OpenBSD 3.8
Machine : i386
I use the standard bsd.mp to feed two Xeon CPUs.
The configure script from gettext 0.14.3 resets the entire system as an unprivileged user.
WARNING: The operating system will reset itself!
Run ./configure in the source directory as an unprivileged user.
/var/log has no information about what happens. I tried to log the couse with ./configure >& crash.log but the system fails to write the file before the crash.
The following might me related to this problem.
The configure script from ATK 1.9.1 froze X on line: "appending configuration tag "CXX" to libtool.
I had to reset my own machine. :'( Running the script in text mode "solved" the problem.
