If this would work I'd gladly follow the procedure described in updating.

make buildworld: works ok.
make buildkernel: works ok.
copy GENERIC.hints to /boot/device.hints: works ok.
make installkernel: stops with error: "kldxref not found"

The suggestion on current was to simply make installworld so that the
missing file is installed and then make installkernel but this one wouldn't
work either.

so the kernel does need a file which is only part of curent but world will
only install itself when a current kernel exists. Like the snake biting its
own tail.
