The module is indeed present, and it was all the time present. Obviously 
is something wrong or not in the right order with my config. When 
makeing buildworld and then rebooting the box, ZFS module does not 
automatically load OpenSOLARIS module when it detects its absence. I 
guess  I need to fix an 'option opensolaris' in my kernel config.
