here I am again. On a less critical mashine the installation process 
(buildwork/installworld and the same to the kernel) went through without 
problems. This box does have a ZFS device for backup purposes only, not 

The box starts/booot.
When I try loading either opensolaris.ko/zfs.ko, I get this:

link_elf_obj: symbol stack_save undefined
kldload: /boot/kernel/opensolaris.ko: Unsupported file type
link_elf_obj: symbol stack_save undefined
kldload: /boot/kernel/opensolaris.ko: Unsupported file type
KLD zfs.ko: depends on opensolaris - not available
kldload: /boot/kernel/zfs.ko: Unsupported file type

I guess I forgot some of the recommended compiler switches ... ??
