# make world
WARNING: make world will overwrite your existing FreeBSD
installation without also building and installing a new
kernel.  This can be dangerous.  Please read the handbook,
'Rebuilding world', for how to upgrade your system.
Define DESTDIR to where you want to install FreeBSD,
including /, to override this warning and proceed as usual.
You may get the historical 'make world' behavior by defining
HISTORICAL_MAKE_WORLD.  You should understand the implications
before doing this.

Bailing out now...
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.

Now, THIS is quite funny... do you really thing that a person with
- root access
- the knowledge of the existence of "make world"
needs this sort of things?

I didn't see anything about this new-wave-of-user-friendly-bsd going on
the list.. have I missed something?
