Thank you!
Somehow, I got through it today, with SMP working too!

I had a little problem with mergemaster, after buildworld, which had a couple 
of problems that I got around with the make -k argument.
Some things didn't get built.  

Mergemaster rejected some files - /var/tmp/temproot/etc/rc.d/jail

I elected to "merge by hand", just to coplete the process.
Now I'll have to learn what it means to "merge by hand."

Thanks to all who responded with advice and insights.

I have now a working amd64x2 kernel and a partially built, installed, and 
merged world.

There are still some strange messages appearing at boot time.

That's for another day.
