All of these works fine for me. Here is what I did I (I'll attach my
config file, /sys/i386/conf/IDEFIX):
1. Edit my conf file (IDEFIX)
2. Compile and install with the "new method", that is
- cd /usr/src
- make buildkernel KERNCONF=IDEFIX
- make installkernel KERNCONF=IDEFIX
or you can use 'make kernel KERNCONF=IDEFIX' which implies (buildkernel
+ installkernel). See /usr/src/Makefile or Handbook for details. If you
use the "old way" you have to be sure to 'make depend' and so on (as
described in chapter 9 in handbook).
3. Reboot

This should do it. I did not have to edit any of the boot loader scripts
or anything else. You may also need to do a 'make buildworld' and 'make
installworld' first if things are out of sync.

What does a 'cat /dev/sndstat' produce btw?
