OK. So this page applies to me now?
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig-building.html

   1.

      Change to the /usr/src directory:

      # cd /usr/src
          

   2.

      Compile the kernel:

      # make buildkernel KERNCONF=/MYKERNEL/
          

   3.

      Install the new kernel:

      # make installkernel KERNCONF=/MYKERNEL/
          

    *Note:* It is required to have full FreeBSD source tree to build the
    kernel.


I am interested if I need to download latest FBSD sources then? I have 
not touched them since I built a custom kernel.

Thank you!
