FWIW, I have the same problem on 4.1-STABLE cvsupped 10 mins ago from

I noticed these lines in the build log:

cd /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/PCWIN002;  MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj  
PERL5LIB=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503  DESTDIR=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386 
 INSTALL="sh /usr/src/tools/install.sh"  
 MACHINE=i386 make KERNEL=kernel depend

-Wmissing-prototypes -Wpointer-arith -Winline -Wcast-qual  -fformat-extensions -ansi

sh /usr/src/sys/kern/genassym.sh genassym.o > assym.s
nm: could not exec elf/nm in /usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/libexec: No such file or 
rm -f param.c
cp /usr/src/sys/conf/param.c .

nm: could not exec elf/nm in /usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/libexec: No such file or 

Which is quite correct since I blew away /usr/obj after my last buildworld
(FreeBSD 4.1-STABLE #0: Wed Sep 13 14:45:31 CEST 2000). Is this a problem?
Should I have done a buildworld before a buildkernel now?
