I did two builds today with the new toolchain, neither had any trouble
at all.

0) You say "nothing is exciting in your mk.conf" but of course if you
   knew what "exciting" might mean you'd have the problem solved. You
   probably want to post it anyway.
1) Is your tree totally up to date? Turnover on the new toolchain code
   was very rapid until the last week.
2) Is your make up to date?
3) Are your .mk files up to date?
These last two are not important if you you used with the
bootstrap option.
4) How exactly is the install failing?
