This step is only needed if your kernel version doesn't match
your installed world version (for example after a source tree
update). As explained in the comment header of /usr/src/Makefile,
this particular step has to be performed in single-user mode.

If the source matches the version of the installed world, you
can build your own kernels and install them without installing
the world. In this case, only the following steps (from Makefile)

#  1.  `cd /usr/src'       (or to the directory containing your source tree).
#  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).

The kernel can be installed while in multi-user mode.
