I'm not quite sure why after buildworld & installworld I would need to 
recompile some stuff once again (apart from ports, if necessary, of 
course).  Does it have something to do with -DNO_CLEAN and what exactly 
?  Anyway, I didn't use it while doing my buildworld.

Anyway, I may try what you suggest (asap).  Meanwhile, could you pls 
explain where you looked at for errors and what exactly you did 
afterwards ??  (I was at lost myself)
