I did a system update and after that my folding @ home client will not 
work without me doing make install in linux_base-8 ports dir.  BTW, 
linux is already installed from before the update and even after 
reinstalling after the update the systems seems to forget it is there 
after a reboot.  I can type make install and the port installs, but 
since I don't do a make clean first it returns immediatily.  After I do 
this f at h runs fine.  My network card uses the nvnet driver from ports 
which still works at boot with out me needing to make install for the 
linux port.  I believe this driver requires the linux emulation to work btw.

Any ideas as to why this might be?  A corupt makefile in my ports 
folder?  A change to the linux emulation?
