OK. So you're trying to build a kernel from current (1.4ZB) sources
with a 1.4.2 toolchain. I believe this is possible, if you first
update "lex", "yacc", "make", "mkdep" and then "make install" in
/usr/src/share/mk (and "config", of course.)

Have you tried kernels from a current snapshot?
You will need to make the wscons devices, as I explained previously.
This applies to any current kernel.

Not likely, unless you file a bug report. ;-)
Please realize that there are presently 2 active code branches, so
even if all the problems with the "sn" device are fixed in current
(presently at 1.4ZB), the fixes may not go into 1.4.3 unless you file
a problem report against 1.4.2.
