Yeah, the make world.  I've been doing this since 3.4.  Even on my
5.1-current desktop system, and I've never had any problems.  

In lieu of your email, though, I'm trying the make buildworld, make
kernel, make installkernel, and make installworld.

"make world"?  Really?  You don't mean "make buildworld"?
I guess the "world" target really does need to be removed.
