Hm, typically when I can't even get to the verbose logging I find  
that the issue is that the booter can't even find either the kernel  
or the kextcache.  There shouldn't be any permissions issues at that  
stage, but generally booter + kernel + gets you to verbose output and  
then kext_cache is just about the first thing loaded once the kernel  
takes over.  Perhaps the issue is that the kernel failed to load?

Has anyone else had problems getting a home-rolled kernel to load  
like this?
