Did you read /usr/ports/UPDATING (20080318)? You should upgrade to compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16 with linux_base-fc6. Maybe you might want to read the thread "linux 2.6 on 7.0-RELEASE" on freebsd-emulation first. First one this month: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-emulation/2008-June/thread.html

I get the same error message with compat.linux.osrelease=2.4.2 (fc-4). Changing to the totally unsupported compat.linux.osrelease=2.4.20, skype seems to work. As far as I understood, this is just luck, because 2.4.2 is the only supported 2.4 version and 2.6.16 the only (experimentally) supported 2.6 version. (Other Linux syscalls are not implemented.)

Unsurprisingly, I can reproducibly crash googleearth with 2.4.20, while it runs fine with 2.4.2 -- 2.4.20 really only helps skype.

For me, running evil skype in an unsupported setting is acceptable.
