multiple problems between r212316 and r212643 on ia64

I just rebuilt world and kernel from r212316 to r212643 on ia64.

man(1) doesn't work, I get:

% man ls
zcat: /usr/share/man/cat1/ls.1.gz already has .gz suffix -- unchanged
% man man
zcat: /usr/share/man/cat1/man.1.gz already has .gz suffix -- unchanged

and so on for any command.

sendmail doesn't work:

# cd /etc/mail
# make start
Starting: sendmail-submitmailwrapper: no mapping in /etc/mail/mailer.conf
 sendmail-clientmqueuemailwrapper: no mapping in /etc/mail/mailer.conf

Rebooting with 212316 kernel doesn't change anything.

I cannot roll back to another revision because svn doesn't work:

# cd /usr/src
# svn up
svn: Can't open file '/usr/local/etc/subversion/servers': Illegal byte sequence

I can build svn, but trying to install it, I get:


/usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel -d /usr/local/share/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES
cd subversion/po ; /usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel -m 644 /usr/local/share/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/
subversion/svnversion/svnversion . /repos/svn/trunk > /usr/local/include/subversion-1/svn-revision.txt
svn: Can't open file '.svn/entries': Illegal byte sequence
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/subversion-freebsd/work/subversion-1.6.12.
*** Error code 1

In addition I get this in /var/log/messages:

init: getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/ttyv8, sleeping 30 secs
ntpd[976]: select() error: Resource temporarily unavailable
last message repeated 29 times

Please advise

many thanks
