This question come sup so often, I believe FreeBSD should do this by

selected by the user.

how would you define "correct"?  have all systems boot with a SMP
kernel by default so that machines with multiple processors
automatically detect all available CPU's?  then what about all the
users that are using uni-proc systems?

i think the current state of building a system w/o SMP enabled is
great.  it's not that hard to do a:

cd /usr/src
make buildkernel KERNCONF=SMP
make installkernel KERNCONF=SMP
reboot

this is all covered in the FreeBSD handbook, which all new
admin's/users should be reading and following closely anyway ;)
