My suggestion would be to download the latest ISO and install it on
a machine with full source.  Then you will have kernel and everything
to make a FreeBSD including the correct compilers and libraries.

Kernel is really dealt with differently in FreeBSD than in Linux.
Although there is a kernel, it is intimately part of the whole
operating system, not a kernel which someone grabs makes up a separate 
distribution with.
