Eeek!  You shouldn't run new binaries on an old kernel.  It probably won't
even work, at this point.  Unless it's difficult to run with a GENERIC
kernel from a snapshot, though, I'd recommend upgrading the entire system
with a snapshot -- certainly anything newer than the beginning of March
should work -- and then building -current kernels and userland from there.
