On a test system, I'm trying to upgrade FreeBSD 6.2 to 7.0 using the
instructions from Ralf Engelschall.
I'm stuck at compiling the new kernel.

Here are the steps I took:

 - install backward compatibility files localedata-5.4.tbz
	from: ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/All
	also tried upgrading with the files
	from: ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7.0-release/All
	Same result however
 - install latest FreeBSD Upgrade Toolkit
 - upgrade /usr/src
	$ cd /usr/src && make cleandir
	reports an error if there is nothing to clean
	$ cd /usr/adm && make update
	runs just fine.
 - upgrade kernel configuration
	I've added/checked if the options with ">>" in rse's howto are in
	/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC (or in my case 'hostname -s'
	I've removed/checked that the options with "<<" are not in TESTRABIT
 - prepare the upgrade
	$  mergemaster -p
 - build new system
	$ cd /usr/adm && make world-build
	runs without problems
	$ make kernel-build

==== STUCK ====

My guess is that the ipsec (crypto?) source code is missing? Is this
correct? If so, where can I find it and where should I put it?

Best regards,
