 	Weird, I got this message once because I forgot one part of the patch
 	but the one I sent should be good. Make sure your installed all binaries
 	from src/usr.sbin/pkg_install and try make deinstall clean all package in
 	net/quagga to ensure there is no temporary packing list remaining.
 	How does your current version of net/quagga differ from the one on
 	FreeBSD CVS Server ?
