No.  This normally happens to me when I'm trying to do a full build
from source and it doesn't complete for some reason - anything from a
disk filling up to needing to reboot the box.  I go to /usr/src and
type "make -n build" and start over from the step that failed, which is
usually the first part of the "make dependall && make _BUILD=1 install"

I should be able to do this later today.
