SEGV on FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE with 2.6.2

I'm getting a SEGV on a FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE box. The client is Solaris
9/SPARC. Both boxes run 2.6.2.

The command I'm running is:
  $ rsync -arHRv --numeric-ids --delete --exclude=/opt/dist/cdrom \
  [paths] [server]:[path]

If I whittle down what appears in [paths], then it works.

$ gdb rsync rsync.core

Based on #2, seems the SEGV is in make_file but #1 doesn't show the
function name and line number. Odd.
