Now the real fun starts though:

# uname -a
DragonFly 1.3.2-DEVELOPMENT DragonFly
1.3.2-DEVELOPMENT #11: Sat Jun 25 11:38:55 CEST 2005
asmodai at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/usr/src/sys/compile/PURGATORY

# make installworld
You must upgrade your kernel to at least 1.3.4 and reboot before you can
safely installworld, due to stat(2) ABI changes
*** Error code 1

# cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
# config PURGATORY
. ./../conf/files: emulation/dragonfly12/dfbsd12_stat.c must be optional, mandatory or standard
Your version of config(8) is out of sync with your kernel source.

Ok, so I thought of:

# cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/config 
# make install
install  -o root -g wheel -m 555   config /usr/sbin
install: config: No such file or directory
*** Error code 71

Which is logical since our world builds from a different location than
standard obj.
So I:

# cp /usr/obj/usr/src/world_i386/usr/src/usr.sbin/config/config /usr/sbin/config

# config PURGATORY 
/usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by "config"

So the old way of doing things is at least broken in this sense.

make buildkernel KERNCONF=PURGATORY works.

config complained about 'compat_df12' not being present, whereas the option
is in upper case.

When I did make buildkernel, with KERNCONF at first, I noticed it was
building GENERIC, so I ctrl C'd it.  It then after a small break resumed
building mkdep for the modules.  In the background.  Joerg mentioned this
might be a pgrp issue.
