I recently got something like that, when I tried to load an aperture lkm
which I had compiled with pkg_comp. Strangely enough, it claimed that
the lkm was for version 399somethign while the system was 300zeros.
I don't quite understand where it got the 399* version number from,
since I had compiled it under the same kernel as the one was running.
The only thing that was 3.99+ (i.e. some -current) was the file server
where the chroot files were actually located.

Compiling again without pkg_comp make the issue go away. I'm puzzled
however how it could ever occur.
