Now that this is in its own thread, the output that confirmed synchronicity has been lost, so I will take a moment and repeat it here, and highlight in red what I noticed:
 -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  bin  528664 Aug 17  2011 /sbin/pfctl
kern.version=OpenBSD 5.0 (GENERIC.MP) #63: Wed Aug 17 10:14:30 MDT 2011
These are in sync because:
  1. The kernel and the userland binary were both built on the same day.
  2. The poster, kbeaucha, is a -release user, and there are only two releases per year. It would have been very obvious if there had been some sort of user error in upgrade -- the dates would have been at least 6 months apart.
I'd asked about synchronicity in the first place only because Googling had shown that, once upon a time, an implementation error by a user who was running a kernel and userland out of sync had produced the same error message. I wanted to confirm or rule this out in kbeaucha's case.
