I've just found the same result on a quite-different machine: Power
Mac 9500 with G3 upgrade.

On both the 6500 and the 9500, I usually make a number of small mods
to the compile (compile sound in instead of module, turn off video
and ethernet drivers I don't need, turn off USB modem and PPP, stuff
like this), but I can't be totally sure I haven't turned something
important off because I didn't write it all down...

I've never seen a freeze at the proc filesystem mount. What should I
look for to fix this?
