As far as I remember, this update is not part of the
compiling process, but will be performed later on as
a startup procedure.
I just checked; have a look at /etc/rc.d/motd and the
corresponding update_motd= setting for /etc/rc.conf.
The rc script basically is a search & replace mechanism
that obtains the current version from a uname call.
In your case, check if the one server in question does
have update_motd="NO" set.
