Yes, they have.  <sigh>

So far, every report of this problem has had these two
elements in common:

  * parallel builds
  * dhclient/client/clparse.o

I've tried tracing through the crunchgen-generated Makefile for
/rescue (/usr/obj/usr/src/rescue/rescue/ and the
dhclient makefile (/usr/src/sbin/dhclient/Makefile) and have yet
to come up with anything.  (To be honest, I haven't even managed
to reproduce this problem.)  Both of these makefiles are pretty
peculiar, and I had the devil of a time getting it to work correctly
for serial builds, so I shouldn't be surprised that it's causing

Maybe someone who understands parallel make better than I do
could suggest something to look for?
