It's apparent you don't quite understand. The "updated header files"
reside in /usr/src, and ***remain there*** until installworld is done.
The buildworld process will include the "updated header files", trumping
most of those which are in /usr/include.
You do not need to copy any files from /usr/src/sys/sys to /usr/include
or anywhere else to get buildworld to work. If you're having to do
that, the problem is very likely elsewhere.

Okay, so you installed 7.0-RELEASE on a machine. Did you choose to
install src from the CD/DVD when installing? (If so, you will need to
"adopt" the version you installed to the current version, see the cvsup
FAQ here: http://www.cvsup.org/faq.html#caniadopt -- and you'll need to
do this for ports if you installed the ports tree off the CD/DVD as
If you csup'd, what tag did you use? RELENG_7? I'm assuming so. Did
you use src-all, or are you using a custom supfile? We use
