	Strange.  I just cvsup'ed earlier today to 5_RELENG and
didn't have any problems with my buildworld.  My uname looks
FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE #0: Sat Dec  4 06:52:38 CST 2004     root at i386

so the cvsup happened sometime around 0600 CST.  Something may
have been added in the mean time, but...

	More importantly, what does your /etc/make.conf look
