Hey Matt - You'll need to add options to your kernel.
I'm not sure about the messaging tho.

Bad system call is probably an effort to grab/alloc some shared memory.

options		SYSVSHM			# Shared Memory
options 	"SHMMAXPGS=1536"	# 6M (1536 4k pages) sh memory
options		SYSVSEM			# semaphores
options		SYSVMSG			# messaging

BTW - Im using FreeBSD 2.0.5

Hope this helps.
