I'd say the simplest way to do this is to obtain the sources
for the desired system (9.2-RELEASE) and follow the easy
instructions provided in the comment header of /usr/src/Makefile.

You can use svn to check out the sources, or just download
them from the FTP server (the src.txz file for the OS version
you want to use).
