Well, there we are: booting from a floppy kernel, I did a fsck which 
worked fine, no problem whatsoever. It just happens that the previous 
fsck slaughtered one of my partitions (/usr/pkg): there were no 
sub-repertories anymore. I had to start over compiling tonight… Good 
opportunity to clean up some oddities.

I wonder if there is a bug in the latest fsck, or if this has something 
to do with recent changes in kernel (compat ?).
