Waste of time and of no relevance to the problem. If you want to do
something again to ensure currency, remove and cvsup your sources.

Having used it many times in many situations since before it was part of
the system and given the lack of any avalanch of reports on the lists, I'm
quite confident you messed it up and that mergmaster works very well.

You are certainly missing some steps which mergmaster handles.

No comment on recompiling /etc/rc.

I suggest following my earlier advice and running mergmaster.
