The correct word is "directory". :-)

What exactly is the error message?

/usr/src should belong to root:wheel and have rwxr-xr-x permissions
(those are the defaults). Does mergemaster indicate an error for
/usr/src itself or for a subdirectory thereof?

You probably can restore /usr/src by using the mtree specification
in /etc/mtree/BSD.usr.dist.
