Yes, -current's move to the more correct ctype macros seems to have
had a more far-reaching effect than the statvfs changes. I agree that
the best way is to cast the arguments where necessary to unsigned

The comms with the big bad world went down for a while, and that accounted
for some of the fallout here. I am running another build now, taken from
sources earlier on today. That run is now at:

so I'd expect to have some results soon after the freeze starts.
I hope there aren't any hardware problems - the disks themselves are in
a RAID 1, and the memory has been stable since I fixed the duff DIMM
earlier on this year (and thanks to memtest for finding that).
Thanks once again for your analyses.
