I ran this at various times during the configure (which I have found
to trigger these messages), both before and after the messages
appeared (but probably not during). They all appeared as follows:

root@dalles[/home/russell] $ ipcs -a

------ Shared Memory Segments --------
key shmid owner perms bytes nattch status

------ Semaphore Arrays --------
key semid owner perms nsems status

------ Message Queues --------
key msqid owner perms used-bytes messages

Not sure what that means.
