Did you do steps 2 and 4 from the /usr/ports/UPDATING entry?

   AFFECTS: users of emulators/linux_base-f10 and emulators/linux_base-c6

   The complete drop-in replacement linux-c6 port infrastructure is in 
   and will shortly replace the current linux-f10- ports as default.

   To switch to the linux-c6 infrastructure you should:

   0. Backup all your vital information!
   1. Remove the current linux base port and all linux-f10- ports.
   2. Add the following lines to /etc/make.conf:
   3. Make sure no linux application is running.
   4. Set appropriate sysctl (compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.18).
   5. Install emulators/linux-c6.

   That should be enough in most circumstances. If you experience 
   please be sure to expand step 1 to:

   1a. Remove all ports which depend on linux base port.
   1b. Remove linux base port.
   1c. Clean /compat/linux/ directory.

   Should you encounter any other difficulties not fixed by these 
   steps, please submit an issue report in Bugzilla and send an email to 
   emulation@ mailing list.date to linux_base-c6
