        I'm replying to my own post for anyone who runs into this
        problem and finds this in an archive.   The solution is to
        take a clue from /boot/loader.help and drop 
        into /boot/device.hints. reboot, and errors should disappear.
        Why this began with FBSD 6.1? No idea.
