When was the last time you did a buildworld, before your recent
attempts?  In your /root/current-supfile file, what value do
you have for 'tag='?

The last time I did a buildworld on Sparc was on Sept 18th, and I
didn't have any trouble with it.

It might be helpful to do a:  rm -Rf /usr/obj/usr/src/*
before trying to do a buildworld.  It might be that you have
some old cruft lying around from a previous build, and this
new build is getting confused.
