I don't think it matters which kernel the user uses, as long as there
is a bsd.kmod.mk where make can find it. If the make include files
are located in some strange place (other than /usr/share/mk), I don't
know if there's a way to find them. But then, that would probably be
considered broken for a FreeBSD installation(?).
And it's FreeBSD only, since NetBSD has a <bsd.somethingelse.mk>
instead of kmod (I don't know about Dragonfly, but the "generic BSD"
way of building should continue to work there if it worked before
these changes). On the other hand, the NetBSD configure code had a
way to get some flags out of that include file and use them while
building the kernel module.
