See "man md": The md devices refer to memory disks, RAM that
"emulates" a hard disk.
Sadly, I don't recognize a reason why your /etc, /usr/local/etc,
/root and /var subtrees are mounted onto memory disks... seems
that you're not running a default install, do you?
Regarding your initial problem - updating ports - this involves
writing operations in the ports directory (usually /usr/ports
which may be a subtree of /dev/ad0s1a on / in your setting) as
well as in /var, especially /var/db/pkg, the installed packages
database, and /var/ports. When /var is a memory disk with 30 MB,
it may be too small for such a process. Furthermore, if I see this
correctly, you're loosing the content of the package database
on reboot; is this intended?
