I did that and it fixed the problem, but why was it an error in the
first place? shouldn't make take care of these things?

But now I get another error when installworld

it says:
install: No such file or directory
** Error code 71

Stop in /usr/src/lib/libsbuf

When I look it seems to have compiled while 5 is listed
in the Obselete file

my system is
FreeBSD mesh 10.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT #0: Tue Jan 17 08:06:03
CET 2012     root@/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

Thank you,
