Yes. Stop. What you should probably do, is "./ -t", then use
the new toolchain to build the kernel, then "./ -u" (but you
currently still need to update "make" for the last step).

You can build a kernel with the new toolchain via:

	cd .../conf
	/usr/src/obj/tools/tools.<platform>/bin/nbconfig <configfile>
	cd ../compile/<configfile>
	/usr/src/obj/tools/tools.<platform>/bin/nbmake dependall USETOOLS=yes
