No, unfortunately the output is long gone (lost in the subsequent
attempt to install the 5.0-current snapshot). I'm planning on recreating
the snapshot install failure (or getting it right this time and having
the install work:-).

If I still can't install the snapshot, I will resort to installing
4.4 and trying the upgrade again. I do remember that it was in the
"make buildkernel" step that I had the problem (the make buildworld was
successful). A compile failed due to what looked like it was using the
wrong header files (from /usr/include/sys). If this should recur, I will
save the output.

Note that I may have used the old 4.4 kernel config file for this
though. Next time I plan on using the GENERIC config file.
