there is another scenario in which you will use a word starting with an
f followed by three letters. I did a normal update, compiled a custom
kernel but did not re-compile my own application. As the application is
required for the start of the machine, I was left with a system which
could not be used. So, downgrading it, recompile the kernel with the
compatibility option, compile the program and then it should work again
is the way.

Shouldn't it read 'COMPAT_FREEBSD10'?
