[The "make: don't know how to make copies. Stop" message during
installworld since yesterday.]

Not (by any stretch of the imagination) a "solution", but this morning,
I went ahead and performed the following brutish hack:

Index: share/examples/Makefile
RCS file: /cvs/freebsd/src/share/examples/Makefile,v
retrieving revision 1.29
diff -u -r1.29 Makefile
--- share/examples/Makefile     2001/10/20 04:18:13     1.29

 all clean cleandir depend lint tags:
-beforeinstall: etc-examples ${SHARED}
+beforeinstall: etc-examples
 .for dir in ${DIRS}
 FILES!=        find -L ${dir} \( -name CVS -prune \) -o -type f -print

and although I expect that some files may not have been installed, quite
a lot more got installed than with the unmodified Makefile.

And although I didn't stress either of the machines in question much
afterward, they did each boot to multi-user OK.  One was my build
machine; the other, my laptop.

Maybe the above will help identify what the real problem (& solution(s))
might be....
