Sorry, I guess I was a little to agitated when I posted. :-/ The 
strange thing is this: After I built a kernel using the "direct" 
approach, I tried your suggestion.

I used

./ -u -T tooldir.NetBSD-3.0-mipsel/ kernel=ADJUSTED

and for some strange reason, now the whole thing worked out. I am not 
sure whether it's the -T option or the fact that I built the kernel the 
other way before.

I'll try to grab the sources from scratch again and go through the 
whole build process over, this time keeping track of all error messages 
I get.

Thanks for the helpful -T suggestion in any case! :-)
