I've just cvsuped and found that to be so, excuse me for misinterpreting the page.
To answer your original question, then, if you haven't done so yourself already:
You need to update /usr/src and (probabley) rebuild kernel and world. Stick with
releng_4, then follow the -stable instructions on the page. Otherwise if you don't
want to go through the hassle, my original advice should work wonders. :)
