You are running on FreeBSD 6.3 and you are trying to add a package  
that clearly has fbsd7 in the name. Off course it is not going to work.

You clicked reply, or something along those lines on a previous  
message sent to the mailling list, thereby copying over some crucial  
information into the header of said email:

For mail clients that do threading, and show the conversation more as  
one would expect on a message board, your emails now look as if they  
belong underneath the topic named "Hifn 7955 doesn't work with FreeBSD  
7.0-RELEASE", which is annoying to most of us who would want your  
messages to show up in a new thread context. Next time, please just  
email hackers@ directly, and do not "hi-jack" the thread.

Also, it is generally considered rude to suggest that you don't know  
what someone is talking about using the "wtf". We point the hi-jacking  
out so that the mistake does not re-occur. Please refrain from such  
rudeness when people are attempting to help you.

If you want to use the package you are using, yes. Since that package  
is clearly for FreeBSD 7.

Fatal, sure, especially if you want to use that package.
