I looked at the error and the jenkins jobs a bit more and I think the real 
problem is that the FreeBSD_Head job is being run in parallel with the 
Build-UFS-image job, because the FreeBSD_Head job completes without issue and 
the Build-UFS-image job is not being run with -j <anything>. I know based on 
past experience if the tree is updated but not rebuilt with -DNO_CLEAN and 
installkernel/installworld is being run, sporadic build failures like this will 
occur, depending on whether or not something needs to be [re]built.

One way to deal with this issue is to svn up a source tree, then rsync the 
checked out copy of the source tree to a unique memory disk, build from there, 
and install to a unique location as well. Using the jenkins job identifier 
should be enough… but I’m not sure what the best way with Jenkins is to do 
this, partly because I don’t know what plugins are installed on the Jenkins
