is it on purpose that the modules built with buildkernel do not honor 
the options in the kernel config?

If I put 'options VESA_DEBUG' in my kernel config the module vesa.ko 
won't have this option defined. This is becauses it #includes an empty 
opt_vesa.h from 
/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/<KERNCONF>/usr/src/sys/dev/video/i386/vesa (the 
module build directory) instead of the one in 
/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/<KERNCONF> (the kernel build directory) which 
contains the VESA_DEBUG option.

Is there a way to achieve what I want (kldload vesa but keep debugging
