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.

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.

Thanks for taking a look.
