I'm afraid you're going to have to run a new fsck_ffs(8) on this
filesystem at some point.

But, can you mail me the output of

	dumpfs /dev/rwd0i

for both an old and a new dumpfs binary? I only want the output
until the first empty line.

Of importance are especially nbfree, ndir, nffree, nifree and the filesystem
time. I think the summary values are bad, and fsck_ffs(8) uses those for
some things.
