Hi Annelise,

It seems you are running mergemaster with a new kernel but with the old
make(1) binary across a major release update.  Since part of the update
process spawned by mergemaster depends on `make' and the `/usr/share/mk'
files, you have to installworld before you can use the new megemaster

The pre-buildworld mode of mergemaster (`mergemaster -p') should run
fine even with an old userland and old `/usr/share/mk' files.  But you
should install everything before you run a full mergemaster update of
all files in `/etc'.
