When I did that it told me I needed to run buildkernel first.
So I experimented by specifying the DESTDIR when running
nativekernel.  Now it says it can't find 'kernel' in the
DESTDIR (I had checked to see what it created and indeed there
wasn't anything there).
I'll do the regular installkernel and then try to back out
the kernel to restore the original one (it's too limited
for the build machine to boot).  Worst case I'l just re-install
after getting the new kernel onto the other disk.
