Please understand that this is true when doing a cross-install where a
system with the required directory structure to install a kernel is not yet
present. It is not true when updating a system on which is existing FreeBSD
is running. When updating a system from sources, you should always
installkernel first and then reboot to make sure you have a working kernel
before installworld blows away the tools needed to fix a kernel problem.
