 I checked out fresh src/xsrc and ran a comprehensive diff between that
 and my nominal -current tree.  There were no differences that could
 affect compilation or the resulting binaries.  What differences there
 were were limited to RCS/CVS ID comment blocks indicating differences
 in the time recorded when a handful of files were last updated.  In
 each case, the revision recorded in the files agreed.

 The installation from the alternate host causes the same failure.  A
 build from the fresh checkout produces the same failure.  Installing a
 build from yet another build host which has its own independent -current
 source tree produces the same failure.
 There's only a few other possibilities left.  One is that I have for some
 time now always built with "-V MKDEBUG=yes -V MKDEBUG_LIB=yes" while the
 TNF builds do not.
 The other is that there is some systemic problem with my build hosts,
 possibly stemming from the host OS (amd64-7.0_STABLE) or a hardware
 Now, I'll try building from scratch without MKDEBUG*, followed by
 MKDEBUG=yes only and possibly MKDEBUG_LIB=yes only.
