/usr/local empty after upgrade

Hi All,

I have never encountered anything like this before and I am little puzzled.
After upgrading my FreeBSD 8.0 RELEASE, I ended up with FreeBSD
8.1-PRERELEASE and an empty /usr/local directory. It wiped out my /usr/local
directory! I did nothing out of the usual on this upgrade. Any one
experienced the same thing? How do I safely get /usr/local populated again?


Of course, you might discount this possibility, but remember that one in
a million chances happen 99% of the time.
