WITH_CTF for makeoptions is only supported on 9-current (don't  
remember the exact rev).

The text there tells to use WITH_CTF=1 for the buildkernel, but the  
example does not use it (it should for 8.x, it shouldn't need to for  
an approriate rev. of 9-current). The text that it will not work in  
make.conf/src.conf is valid for 8.x, but not (at least it shouldn't)  
for an appropriate versions of 9-current.


For people who like that kind of book,
that is the kind of book they will like.
