I'm afraid it's a "me too" - share/mk/* are up-to-date, so
make and tools get built first, newfs'd /usr/obj,
find /usr/src -name obj.i386 | xargs rm
make cleandir
make obj


in etc/mk.conf

The obj.i386 directories under /usr/obj, and symlinks from /usr/src
are created correctly, but all object files remain in /usr/src.
