Quoting /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf:

# CFLAGS controls the compiler settings used when compiling C code.
# Note that optimization settings other than -O and -O2 are not recommended
# or supported for compiling the world or the kernel - please revert any
# nonstandard optimization settings to "-O" or "-O2 -fno-strict-aliasing"
# before submitting bug reports without patches to the developers.

The error you're seeing is a result from using O3 for building the 
source in question -- At least my 8.2-STABLE ran into the same problem, 
once I used O3, instead of the default '-O2 -pipe'.
