You should use subject lines when writing emails.

Anyways, more to the point.  It wants freebsd's kernel source.  I
generally recommend keeping all of the freebsd source around, but the
maybe "easiest" way to get the source is to run sysinstall
(/stand/sysinstall) and go to Configure -> Distributions -> src -> and
then select at least sys (the kernel sources).  Good luck :)

If I write a signature, my emails will appear more personalised.
