That is fine, but do note that Terry didn't add a new KERNCONF variable, it was
already called that to begin with.  We don't use buildkernel/installkernel in
release, so it doesn't actually cause any conflicts.  But anyways.  Anyone have
any reasonable objections to Terry's patch?  If not I'll test it out for sanity
and then commit it.
