Please copy the list in your replies to me so that others can benefit

To protect yourself against the unexpected in the future, you can follow
the following advice excerpted from the FreeBSD Handbook, section [Using FreeBSD-CURRENT]:

        Join the freebsd-current and the cvs-all lists. This is not
        just a good idea, it is essential. If you are not on the
        freebsd-current list, you will not see the comments that people
        are making about the current state of the system and thus will
        probably end up stumbling over a lot of problems that others
        have already found and solved.  Even more importantly, you will
        miss out on important bulletins which may be critical to your
        system's continued health.

        The cvs-all list will allow you to see the commit log entry for
        each change as it is made along with any pertinent information
        on possible side-effects.

In this case, you would have seen this particular issue discussed on
freebsd-current several times over the course of the last month or two,
and it probably would have allowed you to preempt it from ever happening
to you.

In addition to the above, don't forget to:

- Read /usr/src/UPDATING
- Read /usr/ports/UPDATING

every time you cvsup.
