Wasn't this reported ages ago?  I can't find anything in the bug
report logs, however.

genksyms ought to be in /usr/bin, not /sbin; you don't need before
you've mounted /usr, and it's perfectly possible that
non-administrative users might want to use it e.g. when compiling
their own kernel.

The Makefiles should just look for it as `genksyms' without specifying
a path at all.
