I did build world/kernel, after booting into single user mode and trying 
make installworld I get the following error:

/usr/src/Makefile Line:219 check date and time

I have seen this failure before, previously I was able to open the make 
file and comment out the date and time check, but this time the file seems 
corrupted, I am not able to open the file in vi.

What causes this check to fail?  Is there any way to detect this 
possibility before rebboting to single user?

Using system compiler, _not_ Clang.
