System Compile Failure

I am having trouble compiling the system and kernel for 10.1-RELEASE
on my server. It exits with a failure on the base compilation and
As a solution I compiled everything on another system then tarball the
whole src tree. However, when I go to install the kernel via #make
installkernel, it complains that no kernel has been compiled (even
though it was before I changed systems). Now the only thing that
comes to mind is that this is an AMD64 system. Maybe the install
scripts know this and want to install a customized kernel for AMD64.
However, I only compiled the generic kernel. However, that is what is
running the system now, an i386 generic kernel.
I prefer src installs because of the mergemaster stages. I like how
quickly I can merge files with it.
I have found an article about converting a system to AMD64, but it was
a bit on the old side. I am not sure if it was still relevant. It
was written circa 9.0.
Appreciate the help, I spent about six hours trying my own little
fixes to no avail.
