OK,  the problem started with

src/sys/conf/Makefile.i386, changed Feb 16th

Summary: Compile the kernel with -fno-common to guarentee that we do not
accidently put non-extern'd variable declarations in header files.  Our
module loader no longer deals with commons so duplicate declarations can
cause kldloaded modules to fail, and its sloppy programming anyway.

That's about as far as I can take it today.

BTW, my email is not rrs at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx  Sorry about that.
