Hmm . . . I have an i8k, and apm works fine, and I didn't do either of those
things.

What *did* do was to add

device apm

to the kernel config. Do *NOT* use the apm0 with all those goofy flags you
might find in some older versions of LINT.

And I also added this:

apm_enable="YES"

to /etc/rc.conf.
