I'm just guessing here since you didn't specify one way or the other
but are you running under 'securelevel=YES' in /etc/rc.conf? If so, I
think you need to change this to 'securelevel=NO' (and comment out the
actual level specified in this file) before trying 'make installworld'
again. Then, just change it back if/when everything is complete.

Hope that helps,
