I resync'd my cvs repo and rebuilt world and kernel with the /etc/make.conf from
a recent snapshot image.  Same problem.  This morning I downloaded
2CSNAP-20080128-2330-Devel.iso  Booting from it results in the same error.  This
can't be a problem with my build env if a snapshot CD exhibits the error.
