This changes after the installworld target. From UPDATING:


	To upgrade from 4.x-stable to current
	-------------------------------------

	make buildworld
	make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
	cp src/sys/${MACHINE_ARCH}/conf/GENERIC.hints /boot/device.hints [2]
	make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
	reboot in single user [3]
	make installworld
	mergemaster		[4]
	[1]
	<reboot>

I updated my machine from 4.5-stable to 5.0-current without a hang up,
but I did notice that after I installed the kernel it didn't boot it.
But after the installworld it did.
