I rebuilt my kernel with mem and io disabled, and it worked,
thanks.  Unfortunately (as I suspected from a few
messages on amd64 at, compiling in acpi 
didn't help matters.  If I disable acpi from the loader menu,
(surprising, since I thought that item only applied to acpi.ko) I can get all the way to a login screen.  If I 
leave it enabled, the system locks up when it tries to run

I neglected to mention earlier that I can only boot sucessfully because part of a patch to test_kbd_port in atkbdc.c, featured in PR# amd64/67745 (many thanks,
 Jung-uk Kim).  I don't know if that has anything to do
 with acpi or other annoyances, but "in the interests
 of full disclosure"...

Attached is a (successful) bootup with acpi disabled.
