There are several different ways to build an image out of FreeBSD components.
Primary build system
The canonical way to build a standard FreeBSD image is described in the release(7) manpage. This image is intended for installation on servers, desktops, and laptops. This is the technology that FreeBSD Release Engineering uses to create official releases. More information is available in the Handbook.
Alternative build systems
mfsbsd is a set of scripts that generates a bootable image (and/or ISO file), that creates a working minimal installation of FreeBSD. It is completely loaded into memory. It is written and maintained by MartinMatuska.
Another build system intended to be used to create customized images for embedded systems is nanobsd(8) currently maintained by WarnerLosh. There is an older article describing its internal structure.
