Well, I restored a backup of my /etc/ directory and now things appear to 
work again (not sure about bash, but the rest works like a charm). Going 
to stick to csh and try and make a smarter buildworld/system sync 
checking script because I think that the root of all the problems was 
the fact that the sources may have been cvsup'ed while I was building 
world originally, hence the makefile and quite a few things may have 
changed during the build.

Thanks again for the help!
