thank you for reply.
I got now syslog as well as sysctl  is there but they have problem... I think

Can you tell what is the problem with my server using following output.
I can not use make or install a port on it.

-bash-2.05b# cd /usr/ports/
-bash-2.05b# cd  graphics/png
-bash: cd: cd: No such file or directory
-bash-2.05b# make
/usr/sbin/sysctl: not found
"/usr/ports/Mk/", line 60: warning:
"/usr/sbin/sysctl -n kern.osreldate" returned non-zero status
===> accessibility
===> accessibility/at-spi
"/usr/ports/Mk/", line 2039: Malformed conditional
(${OSVERSION} < 460102 && ${PKGORIGIN} != "sysutils/pkg_install")
/usr/sbin/sysctl: not found
"/usr/ports/Mk/", line 2596: warning: "/usr/sbin/sysctl -n
kern.argmax" returned non-zero status
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

following is the output of whereis and apropos

-bash-2.05b# whereis sysctl
Warning: couldn't stat file /usr/X11R6/man!
