sysinstall usually puts some lines like:
# -- sysinstall generated deltas -- # Fri Feb 10 17:39:11 2006
# Created: Fri Feb 10 17:39:11 2006
 in /etc/rc.conf.

Another file that rarely gets touched is /etc/resolv.conf,
so the date on that one may be useful.  Also, the creation
dates on your ssh keyfiles, files of the form:
/etc/ssh/ssh_host*
could date to the building of the system.
