Thank you! Just to make sure, I go to /usr/src
make install
shutdown -r now

I mean building new kernel should happen prior to reboot?

Also, I have always used:
make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL

Are the commands make and make install equivalent to
make buildkernel and make installkernel?

Thank you again!
