According to find, the only *.ko anywhere in the system was
gtkrc.ko, in /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/linux-gtk/work/etc/gtk
I suspect this may be additional fallout from my earlier problem,
wherein sysinstall had failed to install the kernel:
Evidently it also failed to install the ext2fs module.
One way to fix it:
# cd /usr/src/sys/modules/ext2fs
# cp ext2fs.ko /boot/modules
