But, <sys/param.h> includes <machine/param.h>.  The `make install' in
/usr/src/include only updates the files that have actually changed.

Well, that's not really what's happening ...

a) is /usr/src pointing to the correct place (via symlink) or is BSDSRCDIR
   set properly?

b) does /sys point to /usr/src/sys (or, alternatively, the "proper place"?)

That's what pops to mind, though the includes install shouldn't care.
