...maybe... who knows.  Make sure you have an extra wait state
for your memory; there's a "25/33" jumper near the oscillator,  Set it
to "33".  If you still lose, well, put a 50MHz oscillator in there
and see if it gets any better.

...that shouln't cause the compiler to crap out like that.

You need to build and install a -current make(1).

BTW, I strongly recommend tracking -current userland if you're going
to track -current kernel.
