What version of FreeBSD are you running?  I believe you need
to run current or one of the snap kernels to get Linux ELF
support.  For the difinitive answer, you might want to try
the archives (I'm not sure when Linux ELF support was added).
Also, all I have in my kernel is 'option COMPAT_LINUX' and
everything I've tried so far works fine (I am running
2.2-960801-SNAP).  I believe you either put the
'option COMPAT_LINUX' in you kernel config file and run
stuff without the LKM, or you take out the option and
run stuff with the LKM.  If you have the right option
in your kernel config file, you will not need the LKM.
