Read the message that's printed when you start to build gnomeapplets2.
You need the FreeBSD kernel source installed in /usr/src (or you need to
set the FREEBSD_SYS variable to point to the location where the kernel
source is installed).

Hopefully, this need will go away in the future when the ACPI headers
are copied to /usr/include.
