That didn't fix it, and I should have mentioned at the start that I was
using a custom kernel. I was also having a problem with rar out of the
ports - it gave a similar error to the kldstat. So I did this:
/usr/local/bin/rar: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1
(FreeBSD), statically linked, for FreeBSD 7.0 (700055), stripped
and then remembered I'd stripped out the compatibility 4 5 6 and 7 from
the kernel. So put them back in, recompiled and now everything works.
Sorry for the noise.
