And it's nice to have that out of the way.

I'm just a following the instructions in the on-line manual. Well,
I used sudo from the main admin account while in multi-user mode, except
I forgot that a couple of times and had to break out. And I forgot to
grab it at the beastie menu on the reboot just now, but it seems to be
installing world okay after a second reboot to single-user.

No problem with that. Just wanted to make sure the libraries would not
be in a half-way state from not having completed the previous build.

Thanks again. It just finished the install, so I'll see what happens in
the second pass of mergemaster (That looks like it could be a very
useful tool.) and then build ports.
I guess it's obvious I haven't done this very much on freeBSD.
