I am getting an odd error on a recent i386 releng9 while trying to build
a nanobsd image.

It dies during installworld in
cd /usr/src/etc/../share/man;
/usr/obj/nanobsd.full//usr/src/make.i386/make makedb
makewhatis /usr/obj/nanobsd.full//_.w/usr/share/man
makewhatis /usr/obj/nanobsd.full//_.w/usr/share/openssl/man
rm: /tmp/install.bqKyLzJg: Directory not empty
*** [installworld] Error code 1
1 error
*** [installworld] Error code 2
1 error

The only thing special about the environment is that its netbooted and
root is mounted via nfs and

The error seems to be in


        ${_+_}cd ${.CURDIR}; ${IMAKE} re${.TARGET:S/world$//}; \
            ${IMAKEENV} rm -rf ${INSTALLTMP}

if I get rid of the rm -rf it works/completes

0{mdttestbox}# mount on / (nfs)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local, multilabel)
/dev/md0 on /etc (ufs, local)
/dev/md1 on /var (ufs, local)
/dev/da0a on /usr/obj (ufs, local, soft-updates)
