I do make -CURRENT worlds every night on a -STABLE box, and the
kldxref(8) miss is non-fatal:
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 555 splash_pcx.ko /CURRENT/boot/kernel/
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 555 if_sr.ko /CURRENT/boot/kernel/
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 555 streams.ko /CURRENT/boot/kernel/
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 555 vesa.ko /CURRENT/boot/kernel/
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 555 if_wi.ko /CURRENT/boot/kernel/
kldxref:No such file or directory
