FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p2 #0: Tue Jul 31 13:27:00 EDT 2007

I applied the patch and recompiled my kernel.  The Firefox install 
worked fine, but when I go to launch it I get:

wine firefox.exe 
fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly 
fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle 0xbf6db5e8, overlapped 
0xbf6db5cc): stub
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {4955dd33-b159-11d0-8fcf-00aa006bcc59} 
not registered
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object 
{4955dd33-b159-11d0-8fcf-00aa006bcc59} could be created for context 
err:seh:segv_handler Got unexpected trap 0
Bus error (core dumped)

Does the patch require 6-STABLE?
