Thank you Jeremy.  I supected something like this when compiling the
GENERIC kernel failed in a very similar manner.  I'm copiling the tools
as we write "./ -t -T /usr/tools".

Thank you and please disregard previous report which wasn't a bug but
a newbie error instead.

If you update your kernel source, then be sure to build and use the new
config(8) tool (usr.sbin/config). Is your /usr/sbin/config also from

(When providing config files, sometimes it is useful to only include the
lines that are used, so comment lines aren't needed.)

Good luck,
