The Monday's email you sent at 11:22 (by datestamp on gmail), you wrote:
mkdir /storage0/diskless
cd /usr/src
export DESTDIR=/storage0/diskless
make buildworld buildkernel installworld distribution installkernel

You clearly 'make buildworld installworld' but your later exports have
/storage0/diskless and /usr being exported.  shouldn't it be either
/storage0/diskless (as a root filesystem and everything underneath it)
or if you want to unecessarily break it up, exporting
/storage0/diskless/usr ?
