you should throw a look at this page for more details:

More specifically, you should download this tarball:

and then do the following:

tpx32% cd src/sys/i386/conf/
tpx32% config VIMAGE
tpx32% cd ../compile/VIMAGE/
tpx32% make depend; make
tpx32% sudo make install
tpx32% cd ~/tmp/src/usr.sbin/vimage/
tpx32% make clean; make
tpx32% sudo make install

Good luck,
