I fear a bikeshed, but I really think it may be past time to remove
the 'world' target from /usr/src/Makefile.inc1. It is rarely useful
and only should be used by those who understand the process and know
that it is safe. Removing it would remove a clear way to shoot one's
foot and would really have trivial impact on those who use it
