nginx core dump after FreeBSD version upgrade

I'm not sure if this is a big issue or not, but here goes:

Yesterday I upgraded from FreeBSD 8.0 to 8.1. At the final reboot nginx 
did not start and gave a core dump. I had built nginx using gcc 4.5.1. 
Rebuilding from source cleared the problem. Logs show nothing as nginx 
never started.

# nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/0.8.48
TLS SNI support enabled
configure arguments: --prefix=/usr/local/etc/nginx --with-cc-opt='-I 
/usr/local/include' --with-ld-opt='-L /usr/local/lib' 
--sbin-path=/usr/local/sbin/nginx --pid-path=/var/run/ 
--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx-error.log --user=www --group=www 
--with-file-aio --with-ipv6 
--http-log-path=/var/log/nginx-access.log --with-http_ssl_module 
--with-http_stub_status_module --with-pcre

# uname -vp
FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE #0: Mon Jul 19 02:36:49 UTC 2010 
root at  amd64

I did a similar FreeBSD upgrade on a an i386 system where nginx was 
built using gcc 4.3.6 and nginx started as expected.

I can email the core privately if desired or post to the list.
