This could have been two things:

1) The VM was originally "FreeBSD 32bit" -- so it emulated lnc(4), it
was then switched to "FreBSD64" -- em(4), then back to 32 -- who knows
-- it's commercial software.

2) The VM had a non exponent/power of 2 sized RAM allocation (it was set
to 216mb -- probably a GUI blooper) -- although this generally hasn't
been a problem for 10 years since video cards started arbitrarily
stealing physical DRAM for their frame-buffer.

lnc(4) problem originates from this error:

   kernel: lnc0: Missed packet -- no receive buffer
