Cannot build generic kernel

I downloaded and installed FreeBSD-12.0-RELEASE-i386-memstick.img

I checked out base/stable/12 r350009 using svnlite 

I followed the directions on
for building the kernel.

I get an error:
  make[2]: "/usr/src/sys/conf/" line 127: amd64/arm64/i386 kernel requires linker 
ifunc support

  make buildkernel
  make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
fail exactly the same way.

Today I updated to r350112 and the problem persists.

So I have a fresh unmodified install of FreeBSD 12.0 RELEASE, I have a fresh unmodified 
checkout of FreeBSD 12 stable, I followed the directions for building the standard, default, 
generic kernel and it fails. I tried searching for a solution to this problem and could not find a 
solution. How can I fix this problem?
