Are you using cvsup or csup? Have you recompiled cvsup in case you use
that? What's in your make.conf file?
Illegal instruction is usually because the program is compiled for
another CPU than what it's running on. It can also be that syscalls has
changed, but then it usually complains about that.
When doing a major version upgrade, you usually have to recompile all ports.
Hope this helps!
