You have a choice :

1) Use the modules, and compile those kernel sections with the m option.

when you do the make modules, and make modules-install those _and_ only
those modules,
are copied into the /lib tree.

2) Compile them into the kernel, and remove the dynamic module config stuff,
from the config files.

    I thought this was under /etc/modules.conf aka /etc/conf.modules.

If you use initrd on booting to say load SCSI drivers, then you need to
update those, after installing the modules and kernel, see  mkinitrd(8).

The messages come IIRC from moddep, but that's not really the point, getting
a consistent kernel config is.
