the first time around this was a real problem for me, starting off with 
FreeBSD and
also doing the diskless stuff, now some time later (hum, about 2 years?), i 
it from scratch with 5.0 - it took me almost no time! adding the local mods 
took more
time since i was (not very successfuly) recording the changes i was doing :-(
btw, i did not have to do no 'lot of local hacking' to get it working:
        newfs /c/2; cd /c/2; dump 0f - / | restore rf -
        (brute force to get most of the local environment :-)
        make installworld DESTDIR=/c/2
        and i could start booting 5.0
