You probably need to wait for compat6x support.  You can't rely
on binaries produced for FreeBSD 6.x to run on -current without
compat6x.  There have been too many changes and the libraries
have just been bumped, so you're running with libraries (before
the bump) that are not compatible with FreeBSD 6.x.
