 10.6.8 I got the same error message when trying to load osxfuse
 failed to load - (libkern/kext) not loadable (reason unspecified); check
 the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8). the OSXFUSE file
 system is not available (71)```). The workaround above solves the issue
 for me (with, at the time of this writing, the official 2.7.5 binary
 osxfuse and the port of osxfuse 2.7.5 installed). Thanks!

 It's certainly not exactly the same issue, since 10.6 has no kext signing
 requirement.  Perhaps there's something wrong with your build system that
 causes kexts to build incorrectly.  You don't mention using kextutil to
 see what OSX was complaining about.
