This is known problem, straight updates by simply "make world" do not
work from -STABLE. Therefore, one has to very carefully follow the
procedure described in the UPDATING file even though normally not so
many steps would be needed.

To get of this situatio, the person(s) affected should do a "make -k
installworld" now and then a "make installworld" again anf this way get
all the new userland installed.

Also, one should not use the "-j" when upgrading (as stated in UPDATING)
