Rebuild the kernel. One of the lovely things about FreeBSD is that you can
build a monolithic kernel and don't have to build any kernel modules or
permit them to be loaded.

Insert one character in the GENERIC kernel conf and start from there

#options         INET6                   # IPv6 communications protocols
