i have posted this to freebsd-stable too, but i think it may be better 
placed here in amd64, as i have this problem only on a amd64 system.

Currently i have a strange problem with 'make buildworld'. I use the
amd64 6-STABLE branch with daily csup on src-all.

When i do a 'make buildworld' in /usr/src, the make stops with the
following error:
/usr/src/lib/libkvm/kvm_getswapinfo.c: In function `kvm_getswapinfo_kvm':
/usr/src/lib/libkvm/kvm_getswapinfo.c:124: error: storage size of
'swinfo' isn't known
/usr/src/lib/libkvm/kvm_getswapinfo.c: In function `nlist_init':
/usr/src/lib/libkvm/kvm_getswapinfo.c:233: error: storage size of
'swinfo' isn't known
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/lib/libkvm.

When i do the same on a i386 machine wich is in config &c absolutely
indetical to the amd64, buildworld runs perfectly through.

CFLAGS= -O2 -pipe
NO_BLUETOOTH=          # do not build Bluetooth related stuff
NO_GAMES=              # do not build games (games/ subdir)
NO_INET6=              # do not build IPv6 related programs and libraries
NO_I4B=                # do not build isdn4bsd package
NO_LPR=                # do not build lpr and related programs
NO_BIND=               # Do not build any part of BIND
NO_DICT=               # do not build the Webster dictionary files
NO_INFO=               # do not make or install info files
NO_KERBEROS=           # do not build and install Kerberos 5 (KTH Heimdal)
NO_PF=                 # do not build PF firewall package
NO_PROFILE=            # Avoid compiling profiled libraries
NO_SENDMAIL=           # do not build sendmail and related programs
NO_SHAREDOCS=          # do not build the 4.4BSD legacy docs

(only difference to the i386-machine where it works is the CPUTYPE, wich
is, of course, athlon-xp there).

Has anyone an idea? It is currenty not THAT important, because there is
a working 6.2-RELEASE world on the machine, but i don't wan't to have a
broken world build if a important security advisory comes...

Thank you all very much & greetings,
