Depends on what you put into your kernel configuration file.
A kernel optimized for a system can lead to better performance.
This has been true especially for systems with fewer resources.
Note that only a specific optimization level is allowed for
"buildkernel" (standard compiler optimization), while
"buildworld" can usually utilize a higher optimization leve.

This approach is interesting if you're working with embedded
systems. On regular home PCs and servers, this is hardly done
today, but of course still supported and possible.
