Ah.....  I suspect you've installed source and I haven't.  As a matter 
of fact, my /usr/src
is exceedingly sparse as the *only* directory with contents is one that 
I created by hand
to get freebsd-update to stop whining already about an openssl script 
that it really,
really felt needed to be fixed, even though it didn't exist on my system:

$ ls -lR /usr/src
total 1
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  3 Feb 27 18:23 crypto

total 1
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  3 Feb 27 18:23 openssl

total 1
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  3 Feb 27 18:23 util

total 7
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  829 Feb 27 18:23

I must say that this makes more sense than leaving it out entirely, 
though I'm not sure
I'd put the utilities there rather than an directory that everyone 
gets.  Luckily I'm
not in charge.  :-)
