Presumably it should be enough to make pool_head non static - eg:
change the def in subr_pool.c to

/* List of all pools. Non static as needed by vmstat */
TAILQ_HEAD(, pool) pool_head = TAILQ_HEAD_INITIALIZER(pool_head);

Prebuilt kernel in case its easier to test... (my acorn32 box is at
the bottom of a very large pile of house contents)
