which URL are you getting the handbook from, I've just checked the
install section of the online handbook here:

and it states:

"    Note: From FreeBSD versions 5.0 and later, userconfig has been
deprecated in favor of the new device.hints(5) method. For more
information on device.hints(5) please visit Section 12.5"

hope this helps.
