I have no src.conf

make.conf looks like this:

$ cat /etc/make.conf | less
# added by use.perl 2009-11-27 15:44:59

Yes, it does:

$ ls -la /boot/kernel/linux.ko
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   240K Feb 20 21:50 /boot/kernel/linux.ko*
$ ls -la /boot/kernel/kernel
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel   6.8M Feb 20 21:08 /boot/kernel/kernel*

OK I'll try that now, thanks

edit: I got this error:

../../../amd64/linux32/linux32_sysvec.c:38:2: error: #error "Unable to
compile Linux-emulator due to missing COMPAT_IA32 option!"
mkdep: compile failed
*** Error code 1

so I'll add that one, too - seems to be building now
