I recently upgraded my FreeBSD 8.1 installation to FreeBSD 9 current via
buildworld and buildkernel. I was able to one general ports, src and doc
update by cvsup but now I am getting the following error message when I
do a src update.

cvsup srcsupfile

Updating collection src-all/cvs
Edit src/bin/ps/extern.h
Illegal instruction

I am new to the mailing list. Is this a known error?
Is this an error to do with the source tree or an issue on my end?

Just for reference, the contents of my supfile are

*default tag=.
*default host=cvsup2.FreeBSD.org
*default prefix=/usr
*default base=/var/db
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

Are you using cvsup or csup? Have you recompiled cvsup in case you use
that? What's in your make.conf file?
Illegal instruction is usually because the program is compiled for
another CPU than what it's running on. It can also be that syscalls
has changed, but then it usually complains about that.
When doing a major version upgrade, you usually have to recompile all
Hope this helps!

I am using cvsup. I had recompiled my VirtualBox port but I had not
finished recompiling the other major ports. Thanks for the suggestion.
My make.conf is deliberately very plain jane with no special conditions
or comments.

Try to recompile everything, or at least cvsup, and see if it works.
