Okay, thanks, it clears things up for sure.
I got away with it every time because i always removed the dir after building
the kernel. So why not change that part by:

../../../../tools/obj/tools.NetBSD-1.6....../bin/nbconfig GENERIC
cd ../compile/GENERIC
../../../../../tools/obj/tools.NetBSD-1.6......./bin/nbmake-ARCH depend
