On FreeBSD 7, net.fibs is a valid oid. Can you determine when
(in the booting process) this message is shown? Maybe you have
a setting of net.fibs in /etc/sysctl.conf, or maybe this is a
value set by some software package?

	% sysctl net.fibs
	net.fibs: 1

In /usr/include/net/route.h, something regarding FIBS is mentioned...
