Actually it originally had NO_PACKAGE because of this (and the fact
that kqemu wasn't opensource back then), but kris changed that to
RESTRICTED in order to enable pointyhat builds.  Do other kld ports
still have NO_PACKAGE?  I agree that using packages for klds usually
is a bad idea, maybe we need a new variable that only allows packaging
for pointyhat in order to test compilation...

 ...or the package is older than your kernel (especially on -current),
yeah thats a good idea (which I just committed.)
