try with

make buildkernel
make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC INSTKERNNAME=GENERIC
make installkernel KERNCONF=SMP INSTKERNNAME=SMP
make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERN INSTKERNNAME=MYKERN

then set the name of the kernel that you want to boot off in
/boot/loader.conf, as

kernel=MYKERN

I don't know if there's an automatized way to perform the same...

Hope this helps,
