You don't mention which branch you're on, but it sounds like it's
probably a local issue for your installation.  I built and installed
from the latest RELENG_7 today, and there are new bug reports on
RELENG_8 since Friday.  Those failing identifiers *are* present in the
correct sources; it looks like your miidevs.h isn't being regenerated
properly.  You *are* remembering to do a buildworld before a
buildkernel, right?
