You're trying to build a 11-CURRENT kernel on a 10-something userland
from the looks of it, and that has never been supported, it may work,
but when it doesn't, FreeBSD won't fix it...

If you do like building kernels the above way, you can do:
cd /usr/src
make kernel-toolchain
make buildenv   # which launches a shell
cd <kerneltree>/amd64/conf
... traditional build method ...

The kernel-toolchain/buildenv builds the tools and sets up the
environment just like buildkernel does for the kernel compiles...

Or you need to update your compile box's userland to match the kernel
version that you're building...
