That means your /usr/sbin/config is out of date.
The fix is to install a newer snapshot or rebuild config.

I think this is `normal'. I think if you do a `make depend' first, the
Makefiles will build the program generators that build the C .h header
files the .et files.

That sounds very odd. how old are your fsck and fsck_ffs?
Does your /etc/fstab still have "ufs" rather than "ffs" entries?
