The how-to is out of date.  You need to:
* build config and install it ("" is now "config" and the
				configuration files reflect that)
* # cd sys/arch/mac68k/conf
* # config GENERIC
* # cd ../compile/GENERIC
* # make depend && make

... in a nutshell ...  ;-)

I updated a few things on Sat. that you'll want (or Bad Things will
happen if you try to run X or dt on the new kernel), so you might want
to peruse the arch/mac68k files on for files dated on
the first or second--or run sup--or wait for a new tar file next week.

I'll add updating the kernel build how-to file to my to-do list...
