Ooops. I posted that in tech-kern once, sorry for the mistake...

Just upgrading fixed the problem. Thank you for your help. 

One more question: it's an emulation package. It will install Linux
libraries in ${PREFIX}/emul/linux, which turns to be
/usr/pkg/emul/linux. However, the path /emul/linux for Linux libs is
hardcoded in the kernel, so we must put the libraries there. 

Is it the user's job to do the link from /usr/pkg/emul/linux to
/emul/linux, or may I do it in the package install rule?
