Up to this point, you were running the old kernel.  After this point,
you will be running the new kernel.

If you don't tell what TOOLDIR to use, it will guess something
based on the output from uname.  Since the kernel has changed, the uname
output might also change, in which case the TOOLDIR will change.  I
suspect that could do the wrong thing if you re-run
with the same DESTDIR and OBJDIR, but a different TOOLDIR.

Is tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZG-i386 the old or the new TOOLDIR?  Either way, you
might have found a bug in
