It's mostly BSDL, not GPL, but:
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld buildkernel
(lather, rinse, repeat)
works pretty well for burning in a new system. General consensus is
if your system can do that reliably, then there's not much wrong with
it. As for working out what's broken when that doesn't work: that's
half the fun.
