Thanks, forgot to load libiconv, that was the only problem. And sorry for not searching. :-(

Let me clarify... it is not obvious (at least for me) what the actually loadable kernel modules are at the moment. I rebuilt my entire world and kernel just to compile bridging, pf and ALTQ into it but I heard that it was a waste of time, since it is already loadable. When I read through the GENERIC kerenel configfile, I could not find the above mentioned, or am I blind? :-)
