memmove(3) certainly should be available on FreeBSD.  Sounds like your
make world didn't go entirely smoothly.  Try cvsup'ing the latest
RELENG_4 sources and build the world again.  Don't use any '-j' flags
for parallel build, use the default CPUTYPE and CFLAGS settings in
/etc/make.conf and if the make process reports an error, don't try and
restart the build, but investigate and try and solve whatever it was
that went wrong.  Ask again here if you get stuck, and include a good
chunk of the make output including from where any error first shows up
to the end.
