You'll have to copy /mnt/s2/etc/make.conf temporarily in place of /etc/make.conf, if there's any significant difference between the two systems. Then you can just do: # cd /mnt/s2/usr/src # make installkernel installworld KERNCONF=FOO DESTDIR=/mnt/s2 # mergemaster -m /mnt/s2/usr/src -D /mnt/s2 Alternatively, take a look at the chroot(8) or jail(8) man pages...
