BTW: as more details of the problem, I had found a tiny bug in "mkdep"
which initially caused the upgrade from 6.3 to 7.0 to fail during
buildworld. Once fixed, it "appeared" to upgrade fine
(build/install/mergemaster), including a new kernel build/install, but on
reboot it still shows 6.3...!!! I have rmoved /usr/obj and even /usr/src
and tried over several times, but same result. Some parts of the system is
running okay, but not others.

Have wasted too much time on this machine and today will move to a new
machine and start over. This server is one of our DNS servers, so we're
covered with others that take over during shutdown of this problem server.
The DNS (or named) is one of the parts not running correctly and the most

Just a very strange issue and wondered if anyone else had similar results
ever -- it may just be the machine, but didn't act like it.

Thanks again,

Happy trails,
