current method to move kernel/modules seems to have problems:
 - it didn't exit with instructions, when doing normal (build(7)) procedure
(don't think I made faulty commands; use script for doing these steps)
will retest on other host; any idea whats wrong?

 - current method (installworld & upgrade before installkernel)
can give difficulty if installworld or upgrade fails; rebooting with old kernel
might pose problem for (partial) new world, right?
