Actually, there isn't too much of a difference between 7.x and 8.x right 
now (in comparison to what there will be later on), so I don't see why 
make buildworld and buildkernel with their respective install targets 
wouldn't be feasible. You just might have some extra junk libraries or 
features sitting around your harddrive from 8.x that aren't present in 
7.x, but not too many..
