Yes, it was.

The process, as I recall, was to run freebsd-update install, reboot, do freebsd-update install again, reboot, then do postmaster -af, THEN freebsd-update install a third time.


I suppose it's possible I lost track and never did that second one (It's not likely, but it's *possible*). Should I just do it now, keeping in mind I've gotten a lot of ports reinstalled in the meantime? 

Or is it best to start over and tell it to grab the 8.4-RELEASE again?

Thunder rolled...  It is said that the gods play games with the fates of
men. But what games, and why, and the identities of the actual pawns,
and what the game is, and what the rules are - who knows?  Best not to
speculate.  Thunder rolled...  It rolled a six. --Guards! Guards!
