oh, I see. Step #3 of "Installing a current snapshot". That should
definitely be changed. Both postinstall and etcupdate need to run _after_
installing the sets.
3. Extract the matching base, and any other desirable feature sets:
tar -zxpf ~/comp.tgz
tar -zxpf ~/base.tgz
4. Perform post installation fixes (still as root)
./postinstall -s /root check
# Now follow any instructions to fix your system files/config
5. Update /etc (still as root)
/usr/sbin/etcupdate -b /root
shutdown -r now
Does that look about right?
