        I finally caught the *first* part of the boot string; it was
        "ACPI" [followed by some error on loading this.]

        Long story short, I was fairly sure that "ACPI  ... "  string was
        causing my upgrade to 6.3 to fail.  I explicitly disabled it 
        with the ``hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" hint and rebooted.  No more
        ACPI ...  string but the boot *still* hung after  printing 

        sio0 at port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 flags 0x10 on isa0

        to the console.  In /var/log/messages there was more:

        sio0: type 8250 or not responding

        I'm upgrading to RELENG_7 and will rebuild, but if anyboody know
        what that last line means, and how to resolve, I'd be much obliged!


        PS:  Odds are that version 7 will hang, too, but dunno until I try.
