I've got 1.8.1-RELEASE running on FreeBSD 4.4-STABLE compiled
10/10 and it's been up for as long as I've needed it, currently
just under 13 days.  I've nmapped it several times during demos
and for testing on 100MB ethernet and I can't fault it
personally.  Almost all the rulesets are in use.

Hardware is as below:

No options to configure were used - just plain configure/make.

Do you have gmake installed?
