Yes. I can cvsup or "make update" to any valid release. I can verify this by, as I mentioned, wiping out /usr/src and then running cvsup. > > Have you tried using an empty make.conf file? > Yes. Build still fails. I can make buildkernel make installkernel and reboot into 5.4, 5.5, 6.0, 6.1 or 6.2 The errors occur only when I use make buildworld There is this note in /usr/src/UPDATING, which I am currently tracking as the root of my problems. However it is a bit of a stretch since I built this system AFTER 7/2004 ... still ... it may be the root ... But then that doesn't explain why the kernel installs ... UGH! I'm weary ... 20040728: System compiler has been upgraded to GCC 3.4.2-pre. As with any major compiler upgrade, there are several issues to be aware of. GCC 3.4.x has broken C++ ABI compatibility with previous releases yet again and users will have to rebuild all their C++ programs with the new compiler. A new unit-at-a-time optimization mode, which is default in this compiler release, is more aggressive in removing unused static symbols. This is the likely cause of 'make buildworld' breakages with non-default CFLAGS where optimization level is set to -O2 or higher. With the upgrade of the system compiler, the kernel has been upgraded to match the new system compiler. This makes it impossible to build a new kernel with the old compiler. Upgrade your system via make buildworld and make kernel (see below) to fix this problem.
