I've since tried to update the src directory by re-running csup but still got
the same errors but did get things working again by recovering /usr/src from
an earlier backup and running csup to bring it up to date. I assume that
something in the source tree had become corrupted but somehow wasn't being
replaced by csup.
This has made me start wondering about the best way to diagnose the problem if
it should arise again. Is there any utility which can easily check the
integrity of the src directory to identify the offending file(s)?
