make universe and /etc/src.conf

I just tried a "make universe", and all the kernels failed because they couldn't
find the config files.  I had forgotten that I have this in /etc/src.conf:


Since "make universe" is primarily used for build-testing changes in src,
shouldn't it ignore /etc/src.conf (and possibly /etc/src-env.conf), like the
following?  Or is "make universe" used for other purposes for which it really
should read /etc/src*.conf?
