I don't know much about programming, but probably having a look 
into the follwing folders will help you to find the information 

	here is a Makefile for the whole kernel, I guess

	device drivers which could be in the kernel

	eg. here are the files of the Intel NIC driver

	the Makefile for the Intel NIC kernel modul?

The chapter "II. Device Drivers" [1] in the "FreeBSD Architecture 
Handbook" [2] probably is also helpful.


Hope this helps.
