The wiki instructions assume you've first done a cross-buildworld which 
sets up the toolchain required for the subsequent buildkernel and boot2 
build.  I can't recall if buildkernel will build a toolchain if it's not 
available but I do recall that boot2 will not build w/o a full toolchain 
build because it drags in something the kernel does not.  I think "make 
toolchain" will get the bits required.

The nanobsd build results will not be used because they go in a 
different tree under /usr/obj (if  I recall).  These instructions were 
written pre-nanobsd support and likely need some TLC and/or need to be 
split up.
