/usr/libexec/lfs_cleanerd is called when an LFS filesystem is mounted. At boot-time, the various filesystems are mounted in the order they're listed in /etc/fstab. My /tmp is LFS, and is listed before /usr. Therefore I get a warning that lfs_cleanerd doesn't exist: it's on the /usr partition which isn't mounted yet.
/dev/wd0f /tmp lfs rw 0 2
/dev/wd0g /usr ffs rw,noatime,softdep 7 2
A workaround in this simple case is to list /tmp after /usr in /etc/fstab.
The problem is worse when /usr itself is LFS. Another workaround then, is to first mount /usr read-only, and then read-write. A better solution is to move lfs_cleanerd to /libexec, since this MUST be on the / partition, which is always mounted read-only first. This way, any filesystem, even /, can be LFS.
