I've a working pf.ko kernel and nvidia.ko from r288246 Sep 26 2015 and an 
buildworld from yesterday Apr 20 2016.  The kernel is custom and I've also a 
loader.conf.  I've no wish to run GENERIC with either debugging symbols nor 
sound enabled.

sendmail_submit is broken, not a showstopper but root gets none of his mail.
cron is broken, not a showstopper but one cron I've setup does not run
Per this thread which narrowed down the issue of out of sync problems,
dhclient devd pflog syslogd ntpd and sshd      *if I had them used* would be
not functional.   Unsure in each case.

Given a 2004-ish custom kernel, a GENERIC from this month, and a GENERIC from 
Sept 2015, is there
any not time consuming way to do a diff between two or three of them and bring 
the custom
kernel upto par with the GENERIC as far as bootability, considering the 
possibility that it is
a loader.conf setting that is at fault?

something like /sbin/kernel-too-old

" please check foo foo from loader conf " or "please check bar bar from 
CUSTOM-K " or even
" foo bar from CUSTOM-K is missing... "  

...a utility that would lessen the need for adding/subtracting blocks
of  (custom ) kernel stuff to/from generic and recompiling one-by-one,
or vice-versa, to/from the custom kernel config,
 seems like a 40 day project UNLESS someone
has run into a similar custom -vs- generic situation as a matter of course and 
has a workflow to
lessen whatever time and compilation effort it takes, which is basically what I 
am asking here unless
a summer of code expert coder of FreeBSD fame knows that the hypothetical 
binary above could
be crafted more easily than not and be a tool for developers as well as simple 
FreeBSD users such
as myself...

PS I encourage anyone with a readily helpful answer to add it to UPDATING as a 
resource for
persons other than myself who encounter the same difficulty...
