chmod: Operation not permitted

After rebuilding world last night I can no longer chmod some system
binaries that I don't need. When attemtping to do so I get a permission denied.
root at Spartan# chmod 000 /bin/rcp
chmod: /bin/rcp: Operation not permitted.
root at spartan# chmod 000 /bin/rlogin
chmod: /bin/rlogin: Operation not permitted
The only binaries this seems to be happening with are the ones used
for remote operations. Ie: rcp, rlogin, rsh, opieinfo, etc. I
followed the complete instructions in the handbook when rebuilding
world so I don't think that could be the problem. But I did run the
following after the system booted correctly.
# cd /usr/obj
# chflags -R noschg *
# rm -rf *
Could this be the problem? The output of uname is 5.3-RELEASE-p5 and
I am running in kernel.securelevel=1.
root at spartan# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(wheel) groups=0(wheel), 5(operator)
These are the flags I used in make.conf to build world.
CFLAGS= -O2 -pipe
If any further information is needed let me know. Thanks for your
