Why is your kernel build pulling in bsd.port.mk?  Please post src.conf and

This is not exactly an answer to your question, but buildkernel has been

manual-config method has limped along because enough of the old-guard of
committers has it in finger memory, but manual-config has been excised
from the handbook for quite some time.
