No. You should follow the procedure mentioned in the
comment header of /usr/src/Makefile. From my (old)
# 1. `cd /usr/src' (or to the directory containing your source tree).
# 2. `make buildworld'
# 3. `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
# 4. `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
# [steps 3. & 4. can be combined by using the "kernel" target]
# 5. `reboot' (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt).
# 6. `mergemaster -p'
# 7. `make installworld'
# 8. `make delete-old'
# 9. `mergemaster' (you may wish to use -i, along with -U or -F).
# 10. `reboot'
# 11. `make delete-old-libs' (in case no 3rd party program uses them anymore)
Pick what you need to do. When kernel and world sources are
in sync, a new kernel can always be installed in multi-user
mode. To install world, you should drop to single-user mode
to avoid interferences with a full-featured system running
in the "background". This procedure (or parts of it) will
also work when you have been using freebsd-update to modify
your kernel, world, and sources.
