I recently compiled 4.9-p8.  I see warning messages for
procfs_status.c, if_ethersubr.c among many others which are missing
from your log...

I would like to believe that those non-fatal but pesky messages had
been taken care of in FreeBSD 4.x, but that is quite unlikely.  You
seem to have captured only stdout output but not stderr output.  If
that assumption is correct, then (using bourne like shell) ...

  { make buildkernel && make installkernel; } >KERNEL.TXT 2>&1


...should capture output in both the streams.
