freebsd-update question.

I wanted to see if I could get an 8.1 system updated to 9.0 (mostly) with 
freebsd-update. I did this with a source update to RELENG_8_3 and then did the 
standard stuff to get to 9.0

perl and xdm both gave errors that was missing. scanning google and 
questions suggested this module was removed. Also in some basic way the ports 
make scripts view the system as an 8.X system as make index gives 'Generating 
INDEX-8 - please wait.."

Can this be repaired? Building from source is out of the question for this
