Not sure about your specific error, but it doesn't appear that you are
following the directions in the correct order.  I think it should look
more like:

1) update sources
2) make buildworld
3) edit kernel config file
4) make buildkernel
5) make installkernel
6) reboot
7) rm -rf /usr/obj/*
8) make installworld
9) mergemaster

I've left out some intervening steps, but I think that this is more the
correct order of operations.
