OK, sounds good. Seems to me this is something that might deserve a mention in UPDATING. Something like: During a source upgrade of a 4-STABLE machine to -CURRENT, the installkernel step will attempt to execute a non-existent kldxref executable. (kldxref exists in -CURRENT, but not in 4-STABLE.) This error is non-fatal and can be ignored. Cheers, Bruce.
