	I never use "-j"; so that's out.  I'm not quite some about the
	KERNEL config file.  It was whatever is one the 5.3 CD and
	upgraded to 5.5.  Probably work checking.  I was using -O3 in
	make.conf for the buildworld.  Yes/no?  I figured that by-now,
	with 5.5 gcc would allow higher optimizations... .  Everything
	else in /etc/make.conf is pretty benign.  Memory and disk are
	solid.  --I'm doing another buildworld now in fact.  doing a
	/bin/rm -rf on /usr/obj helped before, so I'm trying again

	If this fails, I'll clean /usr/obj and reset the optimization to
	-O; try again.  I'll snip the last few lines if failure and send
	them in several hours.  [[I've been doing this since 2.0.5; this
	seems like ``the most troubles'' ... but probably not!
