This is a bug in installkernel.  Bug Peter Wemm [EMAIL PROTECTED] to fix it
since he broke it. :)  Or find somone else who groks the src/Makefile.inc1
stuff.  The real fix is harder and involves fixing the kernel build so that
modules stop being a hack and all .ko's are built in the same directory and
then kldxref is run at build time as a build tool.  I guess the other hack
would be to change the makefiles back to ignoring failures from kldxref
for now until the bigger problem is fixed.
