This is not specific.  What exactly did you install from CD?  What did you try updating it to?

Anyway, a few days ago I tried updating an Owl system installed in 2009 (that is, pre-3.0) to Owl-current (i686).  "make installworld" worked just fine.  The issue that you reported did not occur.

Thank you for reporting this.  This file will now be preserved (starting with next Owl-current snapshot).

You're trying to build without CONFIG_IP_PING, and there's a bug in our patch that prevents such builds from working.  While we do need to fix the bug (thanks for reporting!), you almost certainly want to enable that option anyway.  In fact, chances are that you started with a new config rather than with our default config.  I strongly recommend that you start with the latter - that is, pick dot-config-i686 or
dot-config-x86_64 (as appropriate) out of the native tree as your .config, then customize whatever you need.
