problems with cvsup on FreeBSD 9 snapshot 201101

Dear all,

I had installed FreeBSD 9 amd64 from snapshot (ISO-image) located here:

Today I wanted to cvsup to a later date to upgrade to ZFS v28
and compiled port /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui without problems.

Starting freshly compiled cvsup then gives me

"Illegal Instruction"

This error seems to be identical to

As this was created on a vanilla 9 snapshot using the default make.conf with only cvsup settings adapted I thought this might be of interest.

Have now used csup instead of cvsup (which seems to have worked fine), and started cvsup once again (seems cvsup only gives "Illegal Instruction" when a file needs to be changed...).

Any ideas?

Best regards,
