Right, but then we need to bootstrap it somehow as it may not exist on the
building system.  Note although, that kldxref(8) produces the architecture
dependant binary output, so that calling the kldxref(8) in the cross-build
case will produce incorrent behavior.

Also, while calling a kldxref(8) for a single module install looks right,
calling it after installation of every single module when installing all
modules (like in the ``installkernel'' case) is expensive -- we can defer
the call after all modules have been installed.
