Maybe this?

- Grab the liveCD
(ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-i386/7.0/7.0-RELEASE-i386-livefs.iso,
or 
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-amd64/7.0/7.0-RELEASE-amd64-livefs.iso).
Don't grab the 7.1 ones because they don't boot on all systems (it's
in the release notes).
- Mount your system.
- chroot /wherever/your/install/is/mounted /bin/tcsh
- Repeat steps to compile and install kernel

Cheers,
-Garrett
