Don't edit GENERIC.  It's very rarely a good idea.  If you spend some
time to fine tune GENERIC to your own particular setup, matching your
own preferences, you may be surprised in a very bad way after the next
CVSup run, when all your local modifications are blown away by CVSup as
it updates your 'GENERIC' configuration to the official GENERIC status.

It is a *FAR* better idea to copy GENERIC and edit a copy.  Most of the
time I even go as far as copying GENERIC _outside_ of the `/usr/src'
tree, i.e. in `/root/kernconf/LOCAL' and symlink that file inside the
source tree, i.e. at `/usr/src/sys/i386/conf'.

Not necessarily.

Why are you running `/etc/rc.shutdown' manually?

Why are you using `pkill' on Sendmail and syslogd?
