It seems odd to me that this is in /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/STORM
when you think you're compiling a GENERIC kernel.  What lines
do you have in /etc/make.conf?  Do you have a file called
/usr/src/sys/sparc64/conf/STORM ?

You might try doing:  rm -Rf /usr/obj/usr/src/*
before doing the buildworld.

Also, you said that your cvsup file has:

ports-all tag=.

In my case I also have the lines:


but it may very well be that you don't need those anymore.
