I just installed a brand new 8.3 box and got the same behavior. I see
in my output below that I have to build or update my own kernel?


# uname -a
FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE #0: Tue Apr 10 17:33:58 UTC
2012     root@mynewhost:/usr/obj/i386/usr/src/sys/XENHVM  i386

Starting the upgrade attempt:

# freebsd-update -r 8.4-RELEASE upgrade

WARNING: This system is running a "xenhvm" kernel, which is not a
kernel configuration distributed as part of FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE.
This kernel will not be updated: you MUST update the kernel manually
before running "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update install".

The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:
src/base src/bin src/cddl src/contrib src/crypto src/etc src/games
src/gnu src/include src/krb5 src/lib src/libexec src/release src/rescue
src/sbin src/secure src/share src/sys src/tools src/ubin src/usbin

world/proflibs

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:
kernel/generic world/catpages

Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y

Then a bunch more of /etc/mail files and also a merge of /etc/master.passwd=

Then this:

The following files will be updated as part of updating to 8.4-RELEASE-p16:

Then I run this:
