Yes, make world will do it. There is more. You need a bootstrap that will
load an elf kernel. You need to read /usr/src/UPDATING and take a poke
through the /usr/src/Makefiles. You need to update your devices buy
/dev/MAKEDEV. You need a new kernel compiled.

These are all referenced in the mailing list archives in -current and
-stable. There are some odd URLS for you to look at that will help.

Good Luck!
