cd /usr/obj and rm -rf usr before trying again. Then cd /usr/src and do:

make buildkernel KERNCONF=nameofsomeconffile  another example:

make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC

If you have an unadulterated GENERIC conf file present and you just issue 
make buildkernel by itself it will select GENERIC as default. Try correct 
procedure first, and hope there is no problem.
