It's possible that these were both bogons.  It seems that I zeroed
out the drive under a mounted filesystem (/mnt was a scratch fs) to
get the bad dir panic, and the build error could be explained by
an interrupted cvs update that left old, stale directories around
(so the make machinery picked up an empty directory).

My apologies for jumping the gun there.  I recalled the zeroing
when I went to work on that disk again today.
