I have installed from a 5.4 mini-install iso cd. CVSUP-ed ports and src with RELENG-5.4.
I have completed the buildworld, installworld, buildkernel and installkernel process because of some compiler optimalization and want to run mergemaster (although this might not be needed). I ran mergemaster from /usr/src and then it errors out with the following:

install -o root -g wheel -m 640  /dev/null /var/tmp/temproot/var/log/sendmail.st
install -o root -g wheel -m 644  freebsd.cf /var/tmp/temproot/etc/mail/sendmail.cf
install -o root -g wheel -m 444  freebsd.submit.cf /var/tmp/temproot/etc/mail/submit.cf
cd /usr/src/etc; install -o root -g wheel -m 644   /var/tmp/temproot/etc/ssh
usage: install [-bCcpSsv] [-B suffix] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode]

       install [-bCcpSsv] [-B suffix] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode]
               [-o owner] file1 ... fileN directory
       install -d [-v] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] directory ...
*** Error code 64

Stop in /usr/src/etc.

  *** FATAL ERROR: Cannot 'cd' to /usr/src/etc and install files to
      the temproot environment

root at base#

It looks like install doesnt get a sourcefile for ssh. :(

A rerun of mergemaster

When i ignored the above and wanted to install some jails i got the same error with running 'make distribution DESTDIR=/usr/j/1'.
