Apparently, the problem seems to be related to FreeBSD 5.3 only
(I may be wrong, but I do not have the problem on 5.2).

The actual problem is indeed in libkvm, which, under certain
circumstances DOES need a working /proc (actually, it's just one
particular function, kvm_uread() called from kvm_doargv() under some
conditions, that needs /proc).

So, until Pascal Hofstee can provide a fix to libkvm, the only way
right now seems to be the installation of procfs and mounting /proc.
