The problem appeared to be in a linux compat lib:

linux-c7-libaio-0.3.109: checksum mismatch for /compat/linux/usr/lib/
linux-c7-libaio-0.3.109: checksum mismatch for /compat/linux/usr/lib64/

But de-installing didn't work.
This may be (can't remember) if it was installed as part of the base system
install?  Is there a way to run bsdinstall and retrieve what options were
set?  I didn't see anything in the man page.

# pkg delete -f linux-c7-libaio
Proceed with deinstalling packages? [y/N]: y
