I read:
An exhaustive list of options and more detailed explanations of the device 
lines is present in the LINT configuration file, located in the same 
directory as GENERIC.

with the additional helpful note:
Note: In FreeBSD 5.X and above the LINT is non-existent. See the NOTES file 
for architecture dependent options. Some options, mainly architecture 
independent ones, are stored in the /usr/src/sys/conf/NOTES file. It is 
advisable to review the options in here also.

If you are going to rebuild your kernel, I strongly advise that you read the
entire chapter on configuring and building the kernel:
