I had no problems yesterday.  I had been running a late November 
kernel; last night, I rebuilt everything from yesterday morning (UTC-5)
and rebooted.  I got the warning message about the superblock, so I ran the 
newly-compiled version of fsck_ffs on / and /usr before installing the 
new userland.  Everything just worked.
