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...
