Re: restoring /usr to pre-BFU state
This won't help you now, but when you have a known good install it might
be worth it to burn a CD with copies of trusted binaries and checksums.
I'd say get similar box and FTP in your binaries if you can. I'm unsure
where they are in the distro. You may just have to copy /etc to a home
partition or something, do a fresh install from -stable or -current, and
restore /etc and any installed ports.
