If anyone else responded, I may have deleted it while scanning mail too
motd isn't updated during compile. It's updated during boot. If you don't
reboot the machine, it doesn't get updated.
There is also a line you can include in rc.conf to disable the update. Search
for motd in /etc/defaults/rc.conf for motd.
