You should have built and installed the kernel in between, then
rebooted under the new kernel.  If this was not what you did, please
read the Handbook section on Building the World (carefully) before
trying again.

The actual errors were a few lines earlier.  If they don't make sense
to you, please post them for the rest of us to help you there.

Right.  The schg flag is normally set on the kernel to keep it from
being modified.

Right.  With a raised securelevel, you can't change the file flags.
With the securelevel kept low, you can change them, but you need to do
so (with chflags(1)).  [make installkernel normally does this for you]
