If no changes were made you don't need to recompile your kernel.

All this stuff is not the right way around, at least for FreeBSD, and it
looks like you're running MiniBSD(?) of which I know nothing ;)

Anyway, this is what I do:

cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
cp GENERIC YOURNEWKERNELFILE
vi YOURNEWKERNELFILE
cd /usr/src
make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOURNEWKERNELFILE
make installkernel KERNCONF=YOURNEWKERNELFILE
reboot
