Ah, I got it fixed, although I think I applied a "convenient hack" and not
something that should be broadcast.  Basically I whacked out the lines in
files.i386 that were generating complaints, added the two "joy" lines from
untagged -current and dropped in a copy of sys/arch/i386/isa/joy_timer.c
from untagged -current.

I didn't run into config_file.h problems.

The system is up and running now on the MP kernel.  I tried to run "make
build" with NBUILDJOBJS set to 4 and it blew up compiling the tools
(typical -j "getting the cart ahead of the horse" problem).  ah well.
