Before buildkernel one of the following is needed:

make kernel-toolchain
make buildworld

From the comments at the beginning of /usr/src/Makfile :

# buildworld          - Rebuild *everything*, including glue to help do
#                       upgrades.
. . .
# kernel-toolchain    - Builds the subset of world necessary to build a kernel

You did not mention /etc/src.conf ( only /etc/make.conf ). My
memory is that those files do not exist by default: even to be
empty they have to be created.

-r341006 is from head/ ( not stable/ nor releng/ ) in . I'm not sure if this
was intended or not.

(I am currently without access to the FreeBSD environments.)
