Yes, it is possible. Check out the desired version with cvs, then build
world and kernel, finally, install with DESTDIR=/dir/of/choice

Details here: http://www.locolomo.org/pub/pxeboot/diskless.html

Tried to follow your  description, but I seem to have lost some thing,
the client now starts the PXEBOOT process and it looks in the
(/var/diskless/FreeBSD/)/boot/defaults/loader.conf that says

But according to your instruction
http://www.locolomo.org/pub/pxeboot/pxeboot.html the kernel was installed in
the /var/tftp/boot/

Should I simply
  make DISTDIR=/var/diskless/FreeBSD installkernel
