What makes no sense to me is why I've never seen this.  How exactly
are you doing the installworld?  Are you booting into single-user like
you're supposed to?  Is root's shell /bin/csh?  Have you modified
/root/.cshrc to do odd things?

I can't approve the diffs because they're not what's truly causing the
problem here.

What is your $PATH, and from what sort of environment are you running
installworld?  Are you using sudo, su2, su, or something along those
lines?  Is this a cronjob?  Etc...
