init:: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port ...

When I upgraded from 9.0 to the 9.1 beta I had the above problem. I just upgraded from the latest beta to RC1.
While the box was applying package updates there was a kernel panic after a fair number of packages were installed.
I rebooted the box and what I get is the system mounts the root filesystem and I immediately get the 'getty' messages described above. The system does not let me log in.
If I boot in to single-user mode I can mount the filesystems just fine, but when I exit single user mode I'm left at an Amnesiac login prompt - the system does not try and go multi-user.
