           Summary: freebsd-update(8) needed manual creation of paths to
           Product: Base System
           Version: 8.4-RELEASE
          Hardware: i386
                OS: Any

However, by its nature of being a binary update, /usr/src may not to be

Manually creating the relevant paths seems to resolve the issue, however, this
seems an inadequate workaround.
