ndis.ko and if_ndis.ko not compiled during buildkernel

I am setting up a wiereless network at home, using D-Link DWL-G520+ and
ndis wrapper (project Evil) on FreeBSD machine. It works great with
default FreeBSD 6.0 installation - no problems here, but I have to
compile IPSEC into kernel to get proper encryption. Unfortunately, new
kernel doesn't have ndis.ko and if_ndis.ko in /boot/kernel directory
(and old modules don't work with new kernel).

Yesterday I emailed Project Evil author and he claims ndis.ko and
if_ndis.ko should be rebuilt automatically by:

>Would it kill you do just do a regular kernel build?
># cd /sys/i386/conf
># config MYKERNEL
># cd /sys/i386/compile/MYKERNEL
># make
># make install
>Notice how all the kernel modules get compiled for you, including ndis.ko and

Well - they don't get built (at least for me). Is anyone able to tell me how to
get these? (note: ndisgen generates only card driver, NOT ndis.ko and
if_ndis.ko!, also the old way won't work!)
