Re: Where does the kernel get built?

I have been having problems building on -current. I finally
got a current snapshot and unpacked the sets. I checked out a
brand new /usr/src. Then, as an experiment, I took away all my
permissions to write in /usr/src and gave myself ownership of
/usr/obj. Doing a "grep -i obj /etc/mk.conf" yields this:
MKOBJDIRS = YES
MKOBJ = YES
WRKOBJDIR = /usr/obj
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX = /usr/obj
TOOLDIR = /usr/obj/tools
OBJMACHINE = /usr/obj
BSDOBJDIR = /usr/obj
RELEASEDIR = /usr/obj/release
Some of those settings are very strange.
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX must be set in the environment or on the command
line, not in a Makefile.
OBJMACHINE should be set or unset; it's not a path.
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX and BSDOBJDIR disagree about where the obj
directories should go. (MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX says that the obj dir
for /usr/src shouldbe /usr/obj/usr/src, but BSDOBJDIR says that
the obj dir for /usr/src should be /usr/obj.)
Theoretically I should have been able to build everything as myself.
I was able to complete "./build.sh tools" except that the only tools
built were nbmake and nbmake-i386.
Before looking any further, we need to figure out why the tools
were not built.
I'd suggest removing all those strange settings from your /etc/mk.conf
as a start.
1. Why don't all of the tools get built?
2. Why is it trying to create files in /usr/src?
If obj dirs have not been made, then it will create files in the
source tree. Strange mk.conf settings might have caused obj dirs
not to be built.
