The proc size mismatch you're seeing is because your kernel and userland is not in sync.
Reboot. Enter single user mode. Run 'installworld'.
If you suspect 'installworld' can fail in the middle of it all, and leave you with a useless installation, half-updated and half-not, then make sure you have about 300 MB of free space in /somewhere and run:
# cd /usr/src # make DESTDIR=/somewhere installworld
if this works fine, then youcan safely delete everything in /somewhere and run the real 'installworld' without DESTDIR.
So (aside from verifying sufficient free space), the only test to do after installkernel and before installworld is to make sure that the system can boot single-user?
