Have you tried to go with a clean /var/tmp/temproot by typing 'd' for
"delete"?

| # make etc
| Updating /etc (system configuration)

|   Use 'e' to exit mergemaster

BTW, when doing such big version jumps I would run 'mergemaster -p'
before doing the build as there might be new users or groups required
for it.

| # make update-cvsup-src update-cvsup-doc update-cvsup-ports
| # mergemaster -p
| # make upgrade
| # make etc

-cs
