Is sysutils/sysupgrade still supported?  It looks like the package hasn't

Yup, it does work. I use it routinely.

Trying to run this:

     sysupgrade auto ''

Ends in this:

     sysupgrade: E: Failed to fetch
It looks like sysupgrade tried to automatically discover your kernel
config name, and determined it to be "AUTOUPDATE".  Is that correct?
You can run "config -x | head -1" to see.  You can explicitly set
the kernel to use as part of the auto-update with:

         sysupgrade -o KERNEL=GENERIC auto <releasedir>
I wonder what should sysupgrade do when it detects a custom kernel
that is not available in the given repository. Fail as it does now?
Ignore the kernel upgrade? Or maybe the user should be the one
explicitly saying "UPDATE_KERNEL=no" or something similar when they
have explicitly compiled their own kernel, because sysupgrade cannot
deal with this.

A simple starting point would be to issue a error and mention "-o KERNEL=" as an option.
