I (also) rarely boot into single-user mode (in gerneral, and certainly
for in-place src updgrades -- and I do those way more often than any
sane person would recomend, certainly for machines that one is intending
to actually use productively).

But -- perhaps out of a (misplaced?) sense of paranoia -- immediately
prior to "make installworld", I remove /usr/share/man and rename
/usr/include -- in order to be sure that the contents of /usr/share/man
and /usr/include actually correspond with what I've just installed
(once it's completed).  (This presumes, of course, that the only
process to update those hierarchies in any meaningful way is "make
installworld" -- as any other modifications would be lost.  In my
case, that is intentional.)

[For thos who may be curious: I generally track head and stable/{head-1}
daily; since stable/11 was branched, I'm also still tracking stable/10
until I decide to drop stable/10 and migrate to stable/11.  I do
this on a couple of machines, one of which is my (perhaps abused)
laptop.]

Peace,
