That's the only occurance I found. FIBS seems to have something
to do with multiple routing tables, a feature that needs to be
enabled via a kernel option; I'm not sure if this has been present
in FreeBSD 6 already.

So the setting isn't requested via /etc/rc.d/sysctl at startup
(which reads from /etc/sysctl.conf), but from another service.
If it was,
# /etc/rc.d/sysctl restart
would lead to the same error message

As RW mentioned, "Do you have apache?", is there something like
Starting additional deamons: apache
sysctl: unknown oid 'net.fibs'

What's "near" the error message? Usually the startup notification
prior to this message should identify the program that causes this
