Ah, yes, when this particular box was a 9.0-release, I had compiled a custom kernel to enable ipsec. When I check the strings, it's a 9.1 release kernel.
I see my /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC is a 9.2 kernel, so I should just be able to do a cd /usr/src make buildworld make installworld reboot and I'll be running up on the 9.2 kernel and then I'll be all set? Thanks for the help.
