cuse4bsd is a third party module. This means that the sources aren't
available as part of the base system, so making work as compiled-in code
in the kernel will require you to create patches for your kernel source
tree. Not impossible, but not trivial either. I don't know if hps@ has
any plans to import it into the base system (I doubt it though), but it
would only appear a few releases down the line even if he did.

If you don't update the system sources, then you can try a new kernel
config without rebuilding world all the time. Like so:
make buildkernel KERNCONF=CARMEL
make installkernel KERNCONF=CARMEL
shutdown -r now
Just (re)building the kernel takes a lot less time than rebuilding the
entire base system.
