There is a problem with the old install program when you make the
installworld with the new sources. You can solve this by installing the
new install program from the obj-directory. Just copy the
/usr/obj/usr/src/usr.bin/xinstall/xinstall to /usr/bin/install (ev. a
chmod 555 too) and it should work.
