 OK, this is a consequential error, the dependency information in the
 baseline code is incomplete so that netgraph users don't get recompiled
 or relinked. This /usr/src/UPDATING entry is incomplete, it should list
 the full source path to enter for "make clean all install" and all
 affected utilities and should drop the word "slightly":
         Netgraph changed its message format slightly to align the data
         portion well on 64 bit machines.
         Netgraph using utilities (e.g. ngctl, nghook, ppp, mpd,
         pppoed, bluetooth, ATM) should be recompiled when a new kernel
         is installed.
 After manually fixing this up, user-mode ppp works for me with the
 limitation shown in kern/69133, which persists.
 Please add proper dependency information to the base system so that
 ngctl, nghook et al. are automatically recompiled after the message
 format change. Thank you.
