I guess you haven't updated the system (other than the source tree and the
kernel) since February, or you're doing it on DragonFly 2.0.x-RELEASE .
If one of them is the case, either installing those files first (which is
usually done by installworld), or explicitly specifying the location of
these files in the source tree on the command line should help.
make -m /usr/src/share/mk install
or to install just modules
make -m /usr/src/share/mk modules-install
The commits 663216ba and 3b25fbd4 have moved some variables which affect
installing kernel modules into /sys/conf, so you need to have newer *.mk
files installed under /usr/share/mk, or explicitly tell make command to

Yes, but sometimes you need to take care of a few special things,
usually done by the installkernel target.
