I first saw this a while ago (10 days?) but thought I'd screwed
something up myself. Didn't get a chance to clean the box up fully and
try again until this morning. After a successfull buildworld, trying to
do a mergemaster, this happens:

# mergemaster -i
mergemaster: not found
# /usr/sbin/mergemaster -i

*** The directory specified for the temporary root environment,
    /var/tmp/temproot, exists.  This can be a security risk if untrusted
    users have access to the system.

  Use 'd' to delete the old /var/tmp/temproot and continue
  Use 't' to select a new temporary root directory
  Use 'e' to exit mergemaster

  Default is to use /var/tmp/temproot as is

How should I deal with this? [Use the existing /var/tmp/temproot] 

   *** Leaving /var/tmp/temproot intact

*** Creating the temporary root environment in /var/tmp/temproot
 *** /var/tmp/temproot ready for use

set - `grep "^[a-zA-Z]" /usr/src/etc/locale.deprecated`;  while [ $# -gt 0 ] ;  do  
for dir in /usr/share/locale  /usr/share/nls  /usr/local/share/nls;  do  test -d 
/var/tmp/temproot/${dir} && cd /var/tmp/temproot/${dir};  test -L "$2" && rm -rf "$2"; 
 test \! -L "$1" && test -d "$1" && mv "$1" "$2";  done;  shift; shift;  done
mtree -deU  -f /usr/src/etc/mtree/BSD.root.dist -p /var/tmp/temproot/
mtree:No such file or directory
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/etc.

  *** FATAL ERROR: Cannot 'cd' to /usr/src/etc and install files to

/usr/src/etc exists, so does the temproot. I've tried nuking the
temproot too, nothing helps. Did I miss out on something or are other
people seeing this?

If it at all matters (can't see why), UP Thunderbird 1200.
