 Are we (or you (generic you)) treating this kind of config error as a bug
 these days?
 If so, there are a gazillion ways it is possible to build a NetBSD
 kernel config file that config's without errors, but then generates
 either compilation errors, or more commonly as here, link errors, when
 the result is used to attempt to build a kernel.
 I'd always put this kind of thing down to operator error - just use a
 correct config file, and it all works.  I'd prefer it if all the dependencies
 could be automatic, but they never have been in the past.
