RELENG_5 installworld fails

a freshly cvsup-ed to RELENG_5 i386 machine failed during 'make 
installworld' today with reason 'uuencode: can not find uuencode' in the 
share/syscons/scrnmaps directory.
I changed the Makefile in /usr/src/share/syscons/scrnmaps, specifying 
the absolute path to the uuencode executable - 
/usr/obj/usr/src/usr.bin/uuencode/uuencode and the installation finished 
without errors.
I'm not very familiar with the build system, so I'm wondering if I did 
some mistake to get this error, and can I expect the system to work well 
after my intervention, or is it better to cvsup again and reinstall? If 
I get to this, I will cvsup to RELENG_5_3, I wouldn't update to RELENG_5 
if I knew it was 5.4-PRERELEASE - my mistake.
