Figured out the problem myself in the meantime: The machine in
question, being rather "out of the box" had a date/time-setting way
off the reality (in fact the machine-clock was set to something in
late 2006!). This, to my understanding, caused problems with cvsup
resulting in an incomplete source tree.

I corrected the time, completely deleted the source-tree, cvsuped
again, started "make buildworld" and bingo everything ran through
without any problems.

BTW, there's an interesting hint that pointed me to the time-sync
problem in the first case:

Hope this proves helpful to others running into similar problems.
