Your typos confused me, I couldn't find a file /etc/passed but found /etc/passwd.
vipw made no changes for me.
I finally found how to use the m option inside mergemaster -p, it was very tricky.
mergemaster -m is for using a different directory instead of /etc (I checked man page).
After many attempts, I found what was wrong and changed the newly-offending line in /etc/master.passwd .
So finally I was able to make installkernel with apparent success. I will let rebooting single-user and the rest of the update wait because I now am overdue for bed. I also want to update for i386 and for a USB-stick amd64 installation, partly so I can test the ndiswrapper. I also want to build wine (i386).
