Ensure all the variables you define on the make command line are the
same for all invocations of make, unless you're absolutely certain they
don't apply:

make -C /usr/src __MAKE_CONF=/dev/null SRCCONF=/my/src.conf buildworld
make -C /usr/src __MAKE_CONF=/dev/null SRCCONF=/my/src.conf
DESTDIR=/path distrib-dirs distribution installworld

Setting some knobs for buildworld but not for installworld will, at
best, compile things that won't be installed; and, at worst, attempt to
install things that haven't been compiled.
