= It looks like your buildworld didn't complete before you tried to
= installworld it.
As far as the process is concerned it definitely completed, and I grepped
for errors and found none in the logfile. The last thing buidlworld
chmod 444 freebsd.submit.cf
Having done this for the first time, I don't know what the last line
should be. Does it say "buildworld complete"?

= This is explained in UPDATING.
Ah yes... thanks.

= No, you told cvsup to delete your ports collection (the ports tree is
= not branched). This is also explained in the handbook.
DOOF! Won't be doing that again in a hurry.
