Try to comment out these lines from the Makefile
(examples/default/Makefile) and recompile:

(they're lines 53 to 56 in master)

 53 ifneq (,$(filter native,$(BOARD)))
 54 ›   USEMODULE += ltc4150
 55 ›   USEMODULE += random
 56 endif

This will disable the emulation of an energy monitor chip, which you
probably don't need.

The problem is cause by a recent switch to native that makes it
effectively only have one "hwtimer" which is being used up be the
software timer multiplexer ("vtimer"), and ltc4150's native driver
hard-exiting when it cannot get a timer.
