I think this should read:

make obj MACHINE=i386

This indeed creates the links (which were indeed missing for some programs) e.g.

/usr/src/sbin/atactl/obj.i386 -> /var/obj.i386/sbin/atactl

BUT now I'm more confused :-( How do I create the subdir atactl in
/var/obj.i386/sbin itself ??? I know I did it sometime ... but how?
