FreeBSD Source:
---------------
This is the top level of the FreeBSD source directory.  This file  
was last revised on:  
$FreeBSD$

For copyright information, please see the file COPYRIGHT in this  
directory (additional copyright information also exists for some    
sources in this tree - please see the specific source directories for  
more information).

The Makefile in this directory supports a number of targets for  
building components (or all) of the FreeBSD source tree.  See build(7)  
and http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/makeworld.html  
for more information, including setting make(1) variables.  

The `buildkernel` and `installkernel` targets build and install  
the kernel and the modules (see below).  Please see the top of  
the Makefile in this directory for more information on the  
standard build targets and compile-time flags.

Building a kernel is a somewhat more involved process.  See build(7), config(8),  
and http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html  
for more information.

Note: If you want to build and install the kernel with the  
`buildkernel` and `installkernel` targets, you might need to build  
world before.  More information is available in the handbook.

The kernel configuration files reside in the `sys/<arch>/conf`  
sub-directory.  GENERIC is the default configuration used in release builds.  
NOTES contains entries and documentation for all possible  
devices, not just those commonly used.
