Thanks for the reply. No, I haven't rebuilt kernel and world, nor do I 
intend to for the moment. I'm happy to stick with generic.

I'm still slightly confused by this "tag" stuff though; sorry (despite 
perusal of the handbook). Are you saying that until RELENG_9_1 is made 
available I won't be able to compile kernel modules? Or that I should 
have a different tag in my standard-supfile?
