But the 2.6.18 kernel isn't built by default even on Linux, so why on
earth are you seeing it on NetBSD?

What build target(s) do you use? AFAICT the only one which should cause
any Linux kernel to be built in the default case is "make linux26". None
of dist or world etc should be building a kernel unless you've set
something in Config.mk or .config or edited something under config/*.mk.
