Yes, you absolutely do need to do those steps.  The OpenSSL
vulnerabilities were in various shared libraries installed as part of
the base system.  Just replacing the kernel won't do a thing to fix
those shlibs.  'make installworld' will, and you need to run mergemaster
to keep your /etc files in sync with the rest of the world.
