When in doubt, read the Handbook chapter on doing just that.

There is a reason the Handbook was written ...

The handbook is good advice but it don't tell you how to do it this way or how to clean-up, if I remember correctly. It's the long way. You can watch what happen in each step. You can do the && thing you find in the hand book latter. This is more fun!

The exact steps are:

cd /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf
make LINT

/usr/sbin/config GENERIC_90
cd ../compile/GENERIC_90

make cleandepend
make depend
make install

rm -frv /usr/src/sys/amd64/compile/GENERIC_90 # clean-up

I did this at lease a hundred 100 times...
