I also haven't been able to boot a 5.99.53 kernel on my Sheevaplug.  I attached 
a serial console and found that the startup hung on:

Updating motd.

I set update_motd to "NO" in rc.conf and it booted cleanly.  However any
attempts to write to the filesystem causes it to hang again.  It doesn't drop
into the debugger; the system locks up hard.  I haven't had time to investigate
