config(8) VERSREQ checking broken?

    sys/amd64/conf# config -V
    sys/amd/conf# config GENERIC
    Specify machine type, e.g. ``machine i386''
    sys/amd/conf# grep VERSREQ ../../conf/Makefile.amd64 
    %VERSREQ=       600004

Shouldn't I be getting the usual error message that my config version
isn't new enough to support building a kernel from these sources?

A: Why is top-posting (putting a reply at the top of the message) frowned upon?
