Shared object "" not found

While booting 10.1-RELEASE I get the following message on the console:

Shared object "" not found, required by ""

The message appears early in the boot process while network routing is being 
set up.

A few checks show that does exist:

curlew:/home/mike% locate

curlew:/home/mike% ldd /usr/local/lib/
/usr/local/lib/ => /usr/local/lib/ (0x801660000) => /lib/ (0x801867000) => /lib/ (0x80081f000)

curlew:/home/mike% ls -l /usr/local/lib/*
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     15  8 Jan  2015 /usr/local/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  27960  8 Jan  2015 /usr/local/lib/*

I'm puzzled why I see the ' not found' message at a stage in the 
boot process after local filesystems have been mounted.
