I think it's his decision. If he'll do drivers patches and even do
new drivers, if he will use custom mk.conf, and maybe even
custom cvs tree why not use custom kernel config too.
By the way if he'll get problems with something, they are will not
consider by community, if his kernel isn't GENERIC, so it's better
to build GENERIC kernel every time along with custom and hold
it for bad day.

I really don't see reason to write such. Just write your own config base on
sys/arch/(your architecture)/conf/GENERIC and sys/conf/GENERIC and
some online information. Don't forget that the bootloader give you choose
kernel patch, so you're always in safe place.

Didn't you forget to build it? :-) or did make install, or put compiled
to right place manually?
