I don't have an answer but just a couple days ago I installed from  
the ISO 5.4-RELEASE and then used cvsup RELENG_5_4.  I then made a  
jail without problem just like you did above.  make distribution had  
no problems and the jail works fine.  I did not actually use the  
master.passwd file from the jail as I had a tarred up etc for my  
jails but in doing the build it did not error out.  So maybe you want  
to start from scratch and try again?
