I'm sure these are not the commands you used. There is no
'installworld' target in /usr/ports.
It is _wrong_ to run `make installworld' _before_ you have completed the
normal sequence of build & install.
There is no `install kernel' target in /usr/ports.

If you ask me, I think you have probably screwed things up a bit :(
Restore from a backup and start over, this time following the
instructions of `/usr/src/UPDATING', *VERY* carefully.
