Just curious, but is there anything i want to add to make.conf?  My i386 
boxes, I have:

CFLAGS= -O -mpentium -pipe -g -DKVA_PAGES=512
COPTFLAGS= -O -mpentium -pipe -DKVA_PAGES=512

I don't need those -DKVA_PAGES lines anymore, as I've gotten (or am 
getting) rid of UNIONFS, which is what I needed them for to increase my 
available vnodes ... but what about the rest of the line?
