OK, then forget first question in previous mail, sorry for not readin the entire thread.

Could you perhaps have removed SYSV support in the kernel?

$ grep SYS /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC
options 	SYSVSHM			# SYSV-style shared memory
options 	SYSVMSG			# SYSV-style message queues
options 	SYSVSEM			# SYSV-style semaphores
