This is the output I get when building 10-CURRENT from HEAD:
/usr/src/sys/amd64/amd64/cpu_switch.S: Assembler messages:
/usr/src/sys/amd64/amd64/cpu_switch.S:128: Error: no such instruction:
`xsave (%r8)'
/usr/src/sys/amd64/amd64/cpu_switch.S:504: Error: no such instruction: `xsetbv'
/usr/src/sys/amd64/amd64/cpu_switch.S:505: Error: no such instruction:
`xrstor (%rbx)'

The CPU capabilities should not impact the compilation, but here
they're anyways (E8600):
$ grep Features /var/run/dmesg.boot | grep -i xsave

Is it problem with assembler? Which on my system is:
$ as --version
GNU assembler (GNU Binutils) 2.22
Copyright 2011 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This assembler was configured for a target of `x86_64-portbld-freebsd9.0'.

And classic outdated GCC:
$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070831 patched [FreeBSD]

Any help is appreciated.
