Aaahhh...no. You are leaving out steps. To clarify, in /usr/src, do
make buildkernel KERNCONF=WHATEVER (your edited conf file)
make installkernel KERNCONF=WHATEVER
<reboot into single user mode>
(URL may have wrapped)
just to be sure you haven't forgotten anything.
A couple of notes: The supfile you are using does NOT update your
ports. Speaking of which, using a refuse file is not "recommended"
because <mind a blank here, you get an error about something>. The
kernel name doesn't really matter if you do not swap kernels between
machines and use different names (e.g. KERN1, KERN2) so you know which
one you're running. Finally, I like to use script(1) to write a file to
/var when I do builds so I can go back and actually read the WARNING:
messages that whiz by and scare the bejesus out of me at 4:00 AM.
