AC'97 Sound will not compile into 5.3 kernel on Gateway 64bit.

I have attempted to build a custom kernel using the old-fashioned way:
# make depend make install clean
and also the new way.
I have added the necessary devices into the kernel as the handbook suggested:
device "snd_ich" # optional
Rebooting, no new hardware has been added or detected, for that
matter. Still this:
pci0: <multimedia, audio> at device 17.5 (no driver attached)
Even when I try to load a module:
These modules do not exist in the /boot/kernel directory or the /boot/modules
My question is, will this built-in device even work on amd64 kernel, or at all?
And even more so, why do I not have any modules present, the ones that
I want to create? eg...sound, etc...
I have even attempted to # sh MAKEDEV snd0 and also pcm0, etc... I get:
MAKEDEV: Can't open MAKEDEV: No such file or directory
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
