Indeed, I did things for the -BETA3 update the usual way:

# build user-space
cd /usr/src
make -DNOCLEAN buildworld
# build kernel-space
cd /sys/i386/conf
config MA5
cd ../compile/MA5
make depend
# install everything
make install
cd /usr/src
make installworld
# update configuration
mergemaster -i
# get kernel

I know the official way is to reboot into the new kernel before the
installworld, but the reboot and installworld together should have fixed
the problem anyways.

Running "make clean all install" in the ngctl, nghook and ppp
directories fixed the problems I was seeing.
