If you have no /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/LISTS then the kernel have not been
built and something went wrong.
To get accustomed to building the kernel, start first building the
GENERIC kernel, see that it gets there, see how long it takes. See the
last message at build. It should not be "chmod ..." but rather "Finished
building kernel" or something like that.
Then, using the GENERIC config as a skeleton, create your LISTS kernel,
but do it stepwise, start removing what you are absolutely certain you
don't need or adding things you load as modules. And see that you can
If you've never built a kernel before doing too much stuff first time
may result in errors you can't identify.
