OK, the problem started with

src/sys/conf/Makefile.i386, changed Feb 16th

Summary: Compile the kernel with -fno-common to guarentee that we do not
accidently put non-extern'd variable declarations in header files.  Our
module loader no longer deals with commons so duplicate declarations can
cause kldloaded modules to fail, and its sloppy programming anyway.

That's about as far as I can take it today.

BTW, my email is not rrs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sorry about that.


Yes, -fno-common is the culprit, as to the fix, I will look at it later tonight and see what I can find.

world builds kernel builds everything is fine, just a few little niches that need to be touched upon matt.
we are working on those..
