Something is wrong in loading your module. You can try compiling the  
snd_??? driver into the kernel.
What does 'file /boot/kernel/snd_???' say? Mine says this.
file /boot/kernel/snd_emu10k1.ko
/boot/kernel/snd_emu10k1.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386,  
version 1 (FreeBSD), not stripped

I suspect that your kernel/modules aren't installed right.
