After upgrading my FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p3 using freebsd-update tool, I
encounter the same issue:
--
The following files will be updated as part of updating to 9.1-RELEASE-p3:
/boot/kernel/linker.hints
--

After searching on the Internet, this post on FreeBSD forums resolved the
problem : http://bit.ly/15a5wW1
The full topic is here : http://bit.ly/15a5Dkv

I hope this help you.

Kind regards,
Alexandre
