Could you copy & paste the exact lines?
The "/ dev/aacd0 on" & "on / var / ftp" parts make no sense to me.
It should be:
some_dev on some_dir (ufs, NFS exported, local, read-only)

for example "fsck /dev/ada0s1a"
for example "fsck /"
You are probably trying to fsck the wrong device...
Rebooting to single user and fscking the RO mounted / fs works as usual.
Please provide more info.
