That's the reason that I really prefer precompiled packages. If you think that you system is all messed up, delete /usr/local and start installing from packages. Pay attention to run the files needed from /etc/mtree to restore the hierarchy for the /usr/local subtree. > Anyway, I've given > up on flash...
