I just came back to the machine and the world and the kernel of 9.0 was compiledwithout problems on a 8.3 machine.
I assume the failure is caused by the default configuration of the 9.0 machine.
I will investigate this now.

OK. That should build the userland OK.
Have you reviewed /usr/src/UPDATING? Near the end of that file, there
is a list of commands to use to build from sources. Scan for "COMMON
Do you mean this one?
make -DALWAYS_CHECK_MAKE buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
make -DALWAYS_CHECK_MAKE installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
Isn't this the next step after building the world?
No; I was referring to the part with the sub-heading
To rebuild everything and install it on the current system.
To upgrade in-place from 8.x-stable to current
depending on whether you're tring to update release/9.0 to stable/9 or
release/9.0 to head (for example).
I am currently downloading the 9.0 sources into an empty source tree on a 8.3machine to see what happens there.
Note that this is also an upgrade.
