Can't compile kernel

The custom kernel config file is in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf I did more reading from the FreeBSD website handbook and it said if you installed only the kernel source code that you need to compile the traditional way using:
/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/config CUSTOM then change to the build directory
then run make depend.
All of this worked just fine, but now when I run make install I get the following error message:
You must build a kernel first.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/src/sys/i386/compile/CUSTOM.
What is the problem here?

The /usr/src/sys directory should contain the kernel source code. Your
claim that the /usr/src directory is empty is strange since you also say
you are compiling a custom kernel. Where is the custom kernel config file
if not under /usr/src/sys//conf?
