Thanks, Simon.  Buildworld works fine now, and even my custom kernel
builds -- but there is one sound module which fails with gcc41:
error: static declaration of 'M_HDAC' follows non-static declaration
@/dev/sound/pci/hda/hdac_private.h:90: error: previous declaration of 'M_HDAC'
was here
I've committed a fix.

BTW, the stripped kernel is actually smaller using gcc41:
3065336 --> 2991515.  (The debug kernel is a bit larger with gcc41, but
I don't think that is anything to criticize.)
Is there any reason to stay with gcc34 as the default any longer?
Yes, a good one even: Running a 4.1 kernel doesn't work yet. :)
