You're correct. I found this thread which concludes with 'CHECK DATE

I synced time and moved /usr/src and did a new csup against RELENG_7.
Did a build- and installworld and it works like a charm. :-)

I do a 'su -' before doing world and have not made any changes to the
.cshrc. Sorry for the noise.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.
