If you aren’t using a DAHDI transcoding card, then you don’t need to
load the codec_dahdi module in Asterisk. Since it was built, though, you
clearly have DAHDI built and installed properly, and the Asterisk build
process was aware of that.

All of that is perfectly normal. If you want that ERROR message to go
away, add ‘noload => codec_dahdi’ to your /etc/asterisk/modules.conf file.
