I ended up getting instructions from a friend n manually running
# make buildworld
# mergemaster -p
# make installworld
# mergemaster -i

to get the world upgraded to 7.4-PRERELEASE.

After this a bunch of removing, reinstalling, and upgrading of ports was
necessary, but everything appears to be working now.

Of course, not having a FreeBSD CD for any version of FreeBSD would make
copying a file from the CD rather difficult... ;)
