As user sources (not root), extract the sources into /usr/src.  If you
like, apply any optional patches (such as the -ow patches, which we in
fact recommend).

Then, still as user sources, configure and optionally build the kernel.
Finally, cd back to /usr/src and do:

chmod 755 linux/
chmod -R a+rX linux/include/

Note that configuring the kernel is required for buildworld to work.
