I'd remove the paragraph (4th from bottom of 
that says:

"If you have not upgraded your source tree in any way (you have not run
 CVSup, CTM, or used anoncvs), then you should use the config, make depend,
 make, make install sequence."

because it's somewhat confusing in the context of "If you are building a
new kernel without updating the source code... you can use either
procedure." further up the page, and I'm not really sure what it means: if
I've just installed full source from a CD, but not 'upgraded' it, do I have
to use the config procuedure?  Obviously I don't, but that paragraph seems
to imply that I do.

Assuming Mike is right (and I tend to assume he is :-) about buildkernel
using the installed toolchain if it can't find one in /usr/obj, the rest of
the page makes perfect sense.
