Doh!  Yes, I guess I was reading too quickly.  And of course
it makes sense that I'd not need to fsck and mount things if
I just "drop" into single-user mode.

But I wasn't yet testing a new kernel... I haven't yet made the
buildworld target.  I see later on, though, where I'm supposed
to boot -s  after installing a newly built kernel.

Thanks for your help!
