Hmmm... You've fixed your clock problems according to another post you
made.  Try clearing out everything you compiled previously and
re-running cvsup(1) to make sure everything has the correct timestamp
and permissions:

    # cd /usr/src
    # make cleandir
    # make cleandir       (Yes: do this twice in order to get the full effect)
    # cvsup -g -L2 /path/to/your/supfile

and then try compiling again: ie. run 'make buildworld' (the 'make
installworld' is failing because it's trying to install something
that should have been created during the 'make buildworld' stage, but
