I get this message when I try to build any Linux program from pkgsrc.
Here is a sample of the actual output.

/usr/pkg/emul/linux/sbin/ldconfig -r /usr/pkg/emul/linux
FATAL: kernel too old
*** Signal 6

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/suse_base
*** Error code 1

I couldn't find any reference to this on the mailing lists.  I am not even 
sure which kernel they mean.  Is it the NetBSD or some sort of kernel 
emulation interface?  I have tried removing everything and reinstalling but I 
still get the same problem.  Does anyone know what is happening here.
I am running a pretty current 1.5ZC kernel.
