Polite note: This is NOT the way to create a custom kernel. The
handbook mentions that it's advised to create a copy of GENERIC
and work with that. It's even possible to create a config file
from scratch, including material from LINT and NOTES, as well
as from GENERIC.
In order to avoid problems, you should follow this advice given
in the handbook.

It looks understandable (allthough not mentioned in the handbook).
Just to be sure, try the recommended approach. If you're not using
KERNCONF, GENERIC will be selected automatically.
# cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
# cp GENERIC MYKERNEL
(or use any other descriptive name instead of MYKERNEL).
edit MYKERNEL and add
# cd /usr/src
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
# make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
Check /etc/make.conf and /etc/src.conf for any strange values
that may be a reason for our strange observations.
