freebsd-update & linker.hints

I'm having a problem updating my freebsd 7 amd64 box. After a recent
freebsd-update, the kernel and linker.hints were updated. However with
subsequent freebsd-updates, it reports that linker.hints still needs to
be updated. I can (re)install but always the same. The linker.hints
timestamp is being updated and the md5 isn't changed after reboot, so
why this? I have tried removing /var/db/freebsd-update and rebuilding
with no success.
Btw, my freebsd 7 i386 box updated in one go with no problems.
Anyone else seen this?
