I am currently tying to use the new tools that replace cvsup and then
recompile.  Ports are working as expected but buildworld has been giving me
a headache .
I'm manually trying

# svn up /usr/src

   Updating '.':
   At revision 248935.

# cd /usr/src
 # make buildworld

It then chugs right along util it generates tha e following error:

cc -O2 -pipe  -I/usr/src/usr.bin/xinstall/../../contrib/mtree

I've probably missed something obvious because I can't find it and I've
been building world for years with no real problems.

Thanks for your help,
