I'd guess that bktr.ko is a 'third-party' module, found in a port, and not
part of the base system.
I found that every loadable kernel module in the base system is, or at least
"was", rebuilt. I haven't used make buildkernel in several years -- I use
a 'monolithic' kernel, with everything compiled in, and loadable modules
disabled. That way I always know _exactly_ what cabilities exist, and
what security holes I _don't_ have to worry about.
