It's possible that your disk device names changed during the upgrade and
/etc/fstab can no longer mount the previous device on /usr/local. Do
you see any error messages during the boot process?
Please reply to the list with the output from the following commands:
ls -l /dev/da* # Assuming SCSI disks
ls -l /dev/ad* # Assuming ATA disks
