With respect, and despite the willingness of people here to help with 
issues, you've either installed an inappropriate version of FreeBSD or 
are not using the appropriate list for issues with it.

You may find that running stable/10 - so following the freebsd-stable 
list - much less of a big leap onto the 'bleeding edge' and sometimes 
unstable development version that -current is intended to be.

cheers, Ian
