That's fine, it's what should be used, /usr/obj/usr/src/tmp/usr/include/histedit.h.
"diff /usr/obj/usr/src/tmp/usr/include/histedit.h /usr/src/include/histedit.h"
should be empty.

That means that for some reason "stage 4.1: building includes" wasn't
run or did something odd.

The magic is in Makefile.inc1, TOOLS_PREFIX=${WORLDTMP}.  The cross-tools
are built with this as a prefix, causing the standard headers to be looked
up in ${WORLDTMP}/usr/include, libraries in ${WORLDTMP}/usr/lib and so on.

See if there's something odd in your /etc/make.conf, or in your command
line.  Or put the compressed output (stdout+stderr) from running the
"make buildworld" command available somewhere for download.
