I've just upgraded my amd64 machine as described at the end of build(7)
with a little arrangement:
env - PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin __MAKE_CONF=/dev/null sh -c '
make buildkernel KERNCONF=FOO
make installkernel KERNCONF=FOO
MACHINE_ARCH=x86_64 make upgrade
(the first line is to get rid of extra env variables or /etc/make.conf)
then rebooted, and now make command reports these variables correctly:
$ env - PATH=$PATH make -V MACHINE_ARCH -V MACHINE -V MACHINE_PLATFORM
so if you're running new kernel and still need those environment variables
set to x86_64, maybe you need to build and install it WITHOUT those
environment variables set.
