Once I had my sources updated, I did the following:
I booted into single mode:
cd /usr/src make buildworld
cd /usr/src make buildkernel make installkernel
I rebooted to test the kernel and that is where I ran into trouble. I did not type make installworld as suggested in the handbook. It said to test the kernel first.
I was told I did not have to run mergemaster since this was a brand new install of 4.8. Is that incorrect?
I appreciate your help.
I've seen the same problem when building 'world' and the kernel at the same time. I'm not sure if this is the 'correct' way to do it, but the logical (and in both of my cases) sequence is:
make buildworld - compiles only
make installworld- installs the new system binaries
make buildkernel - now building against the 'new' user space libraries, utils, etc
reboot and you should be OK.
What appears make have happened is you missed the 'make installworld' step, so userspace libraries and tools were not up to date. I'd try:
reboot and post if any change, but I suspect that will fix it..

Did you build a new kernel as well as world? did you run mergemaster?
