Ah yes, these don't belong here, they should be in /boot/kernel, AFAIK.
But I don't understand why there aren't any acpi modules in
/boot/kernel?  These should have been put there when you installed or
built 7.0-BETA4.

Anyway, you can try to temporarily unset module_path when loading your
kernel, e.g. type:

unset module_path

at the loader prompt, and then boot with "boot" or "boot -s".
