I'll have to try that on another system, all amd64 here, and rebuilding 
the port gives identical cuse4bsd.ko to what we already include in system.

The system is just regular FreeBSD 8.1-RC1, no clang or other funky make 

The port was built with in a chroot environment with the stock FreeBSD 
8.1-RC1 loaded in it.

Yea, i see the error messages here as well, but only on my laptop. My 
desktops use the same build, but don't throw the error, even though 
cuse4bsd is loaded. (Of course they don't have a webcam connected, which 
I'm sure is part of it)
