Did you notice an error? I see no error it with:
make config T=x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc
sed -i 's,CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_KNI=y,# CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_KNI is not set,' build/.config
I think it is not a problem, the DEPDIRS-* variable only gives an
ordering directive, which should be ok even if kni is not compiled.
