I didn't have that problem when I rebuilt the kernel and world four or
five hours ago, but there's no rc.conf knob to load the aout module, so
setiathome failed to start when I rebooted the system.

This knob should probably also be connected to the code in /etc/rc that
runs "${ldconfig} -aout ...".
