How was the OS upgraded?

If it was via freebsd-update, it looks like the first "install was done,
but not the second one. If by a manual rebuild (make buildworld, make
buildkernel, make installkernel, etc, perhaps the installworld never
happened. This would leave userland and the kernel out of sync, but minor
upgrades often work fairly well under this condition.
