In reply to my own post (which nobody has replied to, perhaps
because I never actually phrased a question :-) )... I have found
that if the kernel config file is named GENERIC, it will boot
just fine; otherwise, I loose the console.  I have done a 
cvsup tonight as well as a make world and many different kernels.
If I copy GENERIC to DEBUG and recompile the kernel it will not
boot properly.... copy the file back to GENERIC and everything
seems fine?

I have searched the archives and read UPDATING, but nothing jumps
out at me.

Does anybody have any idea where I could look next?
