This is bogus; the bits in 'stand' should be looking directly in the
kernel's include files, like they do on so many other ports.
This recently came up re: another port; i'm sure that you could find
that discussion without too much problem.
Look at e.g. alpha to see the "right" thing to do. (it's not pretty,
but installing loadfile_machdep.h is wrong; there's no reason why
user-land code should ever need to know anything about its contents,
or even that it exists.)
