"make buildworld" error after cvsup of sources

I have a standard 5.2.1 FreeBSD install on a Thinkpad R32. I wanted to upgrade to the latest Beta of 5.3. I am able to cvsup the sources just fine, but when I make buildworld, it compiles for about two minutes and then errors out with this:

prio.So.tmp uthread_setschedparam.So.tmp uthread_setsockopt.So.tmp uthread_shutdown.So.tmp uthread_sig.So.tmp uthread_sigaction.So.tmp uthread_sigmask.So.tmp uthread_sigpending.So.tmp uthread_sigprocmask.So.tmp uthread_sigsuspend.So.tmp uthread_sigwait.So.tmp uthread_single_np.So.tmp uthread_sleep.So.tmp uthread_socket.So.tmp uthread_socketpair.So.tmp uthread_spec.So.tmp uthread_spinlock.So.tmp uthread_stack.So.tmp uthread_suspend_np.So.tmp uthread_switch_np.So.tmp uthread_system.So.tmp uthread_tcdrain.So.tmp uthread_vfork.So.tmp uthread_wait.So.tmp uthread_wait4.So.tmp uthread_waitpid.So.tmp uthread_write.So.tmp uthread_writev.So.tmp uthread_yield.So.tmp uthread_error.So.tmp _atomic_lock.So.tmp

I have tried completely removing the src tree and cvsuping everything all over again, but I get the same error. Any ideas why this is happening? I know it's not a bug in the sources because I've done it several times over the course of weeks with the same result but my friend, with the same version of FreeBSD was able to cvsup to 5.3 and make buildworld just fine.

Here are the relevant portions of my stable-supfile:

# Defaults that apply to all the collections
# IMPORTANT: Change the next line to use one of the CVSup mirror sites
# listed at
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
# The following line is for 4-stable.  If you want 3-stable or 2.2-stable,
# change "RELENG_4" to "RELENG_3" or "RELENG_2_2" respectively.
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5
*default delete use-rel-suffix

# If your network link is a T1 or faster, comment out the following line.
*default compress

## Main Source Tree.
# The easiest way to get the main source tree is to use the "src-all"
# mega-collection.  It includes all of the individual "src-*" collections.
# Please note:  If you want to track -STABLE, leave this uncommented.

I had the same problem. I ended up just formatting and re-installing but here is the sage. See if it helps you

you might want to cvsup again and follow instructions to do a buildworld on freebsd site.
