im trying to installworld on a machine that is having its first update.
buildworld and kernel completed without any errors, and installkernel seemed
just fine.  however, when i installworld, this is the error i get:

phoenix# make installworld
mkdir -p /tmp/install.7QbDbVE1
for prog in [ awk cap_mkdb cat chflags chmod chown  date echo egrep find grep
install-info  ln lockf make mkdir mtree mv pwd_mkdb rm sed sh sysctl  test true
uname wc zic; do  cp `which $prog` /tmp/install.7QbDbVE1;  done
cd /usr/src; MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj  MACHINE_ARCH=i386  MACHINE=i386 
CPUTYPE=  GROFF_BIN_PATH=/usr/obj/usr/src/tmp/legacy/usr/bin 
/usr/obj/usr/src/make.i386/make -f Makefile.inc1 reinstall
awk: Permission denied
"/usr/src/Makefile.inc1", line 101: warning: "awk

echo:Permission denied
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

the machine is:
phoenix# uname -a
FreeBSD phoenix 6.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 #1: Sat Feb 10 11:15:11
EST 2007     root at phoenix:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/PHOENIX  i386

...but i believe its an AMD64 running i386.  obivously, this was done once
successfully, but it was done by my partner (but following my directions).  i
will note, that i am doing it in full multiuser mode, and not in single user (as
the cannonical method dictates), but at this point, im not totally sure my
current mode is where my problem lies.

can anyone help decipher this error message?
