4.5-STABLE crash and burn

I've got a serious situation here.  I've got a 4.5-STABLE machine that
boots with the following messages:

Mounting root from ufs:/dev/ar0s1a
WARNING: / was not properly dismounted
exec /sbin/init: error 20
exec /sbin/oinit: error 20
exec /sbin/init.bak: error 20
/stand/sysinstall running as init on vty0

As you can see it dumps me into sysinstall, which pops up with "Cannot
mount /tmp/.doc: read-only filesystem."

So I start a holographic shell:

# /sbin/mount -fuw /
/sbin/mount: not found
# ls /sbin
ls: /sbin: Bad file descriptor

So I start in single-user mode, which just dumps me back into sysinstall

This is ~not~ good.  Pretty much the heart of the business (database,
DHCP, DNS and other important services) lives on this machine.  So I
would very much appreciate any help that anyone could offer, and of
course, the sooner the better!
