Well, that could mean it's a hardware problem. Or it could be a libm
problem --- is the new box running exactly the same system software?
The third likely possibility is that cost_sort() is passing some invalid
value to log(), and you're not seeing that happen on the new box because
of slightly different statistics or some such. This would still imply
a bug in libm --- it shouldn't be possible to make log segfault --- but
there could also be a corner case that cost_sort is mishandling.
If you can still reproduce the problem on the old box, please rebuild
Postgres with --enable-debug, and/or put some debug logging into
cost_sort to see what it's passing to log(), and see what you can learn.
