uptime & w

What's wrong here:

# man uptime
<snip>
This is the same information contained in the header line displayed by
w(1).
<snip>

# w
 20:53:54 up 29 days, 12:19,  2 users,  load average: 1.02, 0.68, 0.29
<snip>

# uptime
uptime: couldn't get boot time: No such file or directory


Apparently uptime is trying to get its information from another place
than w, but /where/? The manpage is rather, well, short. What am I
missing?
