I got the latest kernel and i386 SMP sys few hours ago.  I
compiled SMP kernel and booted using it.  The compiled SMP
kernel was working well, but when I tried to compile entire
userland, the compilation hangs at the middle because a
troff process became zombi and couldn't return.  I can get
ps but cannot kill.

# ps
root   29276  0.0  0.0     0     0 p2 Z+         - 0:00.00 (troff)
root   29275  0.0  0.0   120     4 p2 SW+        - 0:00.00 /usr/src/tmp/tools/bin/nbgroff -Tascii -mtty-char -mandoc /mnt/src/usr.sbin/amd/amd/../../../dist/am-utils/amd/amd.8
# kill -9 29276
kill: kill 29276 failed: no such process

Is there anything what I can check?

BTW, RAID5 and everything else works great.  So, I'm really
looking forward to the stable one.  Thanks.
