battery state

For a while now "acpiconf -i0" always shows the battery state that
was correct when booting the system. It's never updated.

It's not bothersome as long as I'm plugged in, but when I take my
system out to the test track it's risky to sail blind. I only have
a couple of seconds to shut down before the power runs out entirely
when the power LED starts blinking.

What am I running:
FreeBSD mobileKamikaze.norad 9.0-STABLE FreeBSD 9.0-STABLE #1: Sat Jun 16 11:09:48 CEST 2012     root at mobileKamikaze.norad:/usr/obj/HP6510b-9/amd64/usr/src/sys/HP6510b-9  amd64

hw.model: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7700  @ 2.40GHz
This is an ICH8 based HP6510b.
