yes, that was the command I was trying to use...

The make files didn't get updated properly in /usr/share/mk. to fix
this, I just copied them all manually from the /usr/src/share/mk 
into /usr/share/mk. This fixed a different problem with building the
libposix shared library. Somehow the make files weren't being copied
properly at the begining of the make... is this broken now?

There is a thing you can put into /etc/mk.conf that will do a make obj
for you with a make build. Something like MKOBJDIRS=yes MKOBJ=yes. I think
that one of these is a default and you only need the other. You then get
a make obj each time you do a make build.
