Thanks, like Daniel Eriksson advised me, I removed -O2 temporarily.
This solved my problem so I didn't answer.
I turned on -O2 because the last bugs from base were fixed and I remember some 
discussions about testing with -O2 wich every developer _should_ do. Well I'm 
not a developer but I did. Sorry for the noise, next time I'll remember the 
old rule to disable any optimization _before_ reporting errors.

My first FreeBSD was 3.0 and cvsup is one af the really highly appreciated 
tools which I use since then, so I think it's not that important to get the 
modulo compiler -O2 capable. There are much more urgent bugs to fix, 
especially ataraid related, and that's base not ports!

Thank you,
