I may be stating the obvious=2C but being before the installworld shouldn't=
 that be a 'mergemaster -p' and not just mergemaster?

After installkernel finishes successfully=2C you should boot in single user=
 mode (i.e. using boot -s from the loader prompt). Then run:# mount -a -t u=
fs
# mergemaster -p
# cd /usr/src
# make installworld
# mergemaster
# reboot
