You need to update your fsck to current to go with the current kernel.

I'd like to know the reason for this too. It looks to me like binpatch
hasn't worked except in ados since the off_t changes. I tried to fix
it myself, but couldn't get it working. Of course, in netbsd you can hack
the kernel source, and can thus patch things from there -- but in most cases
binpatch can be a lot faster than a kernel recompile...
