Well, one quick look at your configuration also shows me that umass is
in there but not scbus or da, which the comment on umass shows won't

However, the basic approach you should use is to go back to a copy of
the GENERIC kernel and start adding your changes a few at a time, so
that when the build breaks, you will be easily able to figure out
exactly which change was the problem.

Also, you might want to look at the "How to get the best results from
the FreeBSD-questions mailing list" article in the FreeBSD
documentation.  Its author frequently posts it to this list.  It will
give you valuable hints about how to help us to help you.

Good luck.
