Yes, there is a problem. See my posting here:


Unfortunatelly, I have not got an answer, but it is obvious packages using this new symbol must fail:

I recently discovered this through a blunder of my own. I accidently "updated" a 7-STABLE machine to 7-RELEASE, and discovered, among some other problems, that sudo failed with the same error you report.

(I've now put a link to USE-THIS-SUPFiLE to stable-supfile in /usr/ local/etc/cvsup to avoid the blunder in the future.)
