And it seems none have? For I get this when I do ls I can see only boot 
directory and no kernels. Is it possible that the buildprocess failed 
though it did not explicitly tell me about it? From what I recall one of 
the last lines pritned by buildkernel was
chmod 444

But I can be plain wrong. Cannot recall it and do not know how to check

I think I have it correctly:

machine         i386
#cpu            I486_CPU
#cpu            I586_CPU
cpu             I686_CPU
ident           LISTS

Thanks again for your patience.

If you think it is best, I will try an approach suggested by Spyros.
