I found it works to actually reset the partition 'type' via the cfdisk 
program (I have a faint memory this is what I did before ...).

I must note though that after I had done this, I tried the upgrade again. 
It seemed to go smoothly, but when I was done

1) I still encounter a hang at "warning: no /dev/console" on reboot into 
the supposedly upgraded system, and

2) Yet again, the FreeBSD partition type was changed to NetBSD!

It would seem the NetBSD installer is definitely doing something it 
shouldn't ... but why?
