At this stage I would nuke /usr/obj and make sure you have a clean
src tree for 3.5-STABLE and try again.

In single user mode, 'mount -a -t nonfs' will mount everyting listed
in /etc/fstab apart from NFS filesystems. You can change the status of
an already mounted filesystem with 'mount -u -w /usr', for example.
