I've seen this in the last couple of weeks as well. I build with -j3,
and the buildworld seemed to go fine.  During the installworld (after
installkernel and reboot) I saw the same as you see.

... and I fixed it in the same way.

I'm assuming there's some dependency not listed in a makefile or
something, but without the log from buildworld it's hard to find.
