I'm running a port-alpha snapshot from June 28, and I want to move to 
-current. I suppose I'd better build config and a new kernel first, and 
then "make build".

Hmmm.  Maybe that's it.

I'm supping 'release=security'.  Will making and installing in 
/usr/src/domestic... as you say fix things if I did fail to unpack the 
secr set?

Thanks, again.
