Again, not a lot of information has been provided. One thing you may want to check is that you have the proper source downloaded & installed. If you don't have source already installed, you will get the correct tree through the following command:

# cvs -d$CVSROOT checkout -rOPENBSD_4_4 -P src detailed in Section 5.3.3 of the FAQ:

If you have source already installed, it may or may not be the correct version, & the above command will not correct the error. The above command also assumes you had OpenBSD 4.4 installed. If source was installed before issuing the above command, it would have to be from 4.4-release. A common error made by those new to compiling the system is to grab the source to -current while on a -release installation. Even if the version numbers match, this is an incapable mix. Weirdnesses may very well occur.

I would highly recommend rereading Sections 5.1 - 5.3.
