It looks like your 5.0 system is corrupted - perhaps your upgrade was
only partial or otherwise incomplete.  Did you upgrade from source?
If so, make sure you are cvsupping the whole tree (src-all), cvsup
again and then precisely follow the upgrade directions in
/usr/src/UPDATING and the FreeBSD handbook.
