whoa, this is really cool! congrats!! 
heh, i was reading anxiously line by line there, so cool to see it booting
on that hardware!
(6 processor vax... 8-) )

as for configuring the kernel, it is pretty similar to the bsd convention.
i think in /usr/sys/conf/vax you find the config files, just take a
GENERIC and customize it.. the BINARY is the 'everything' kernel, meant
only to test to make sure everything there compiles properly, and then 
just as in bsd, config <config file>, which leaves a directory
in /usr/sys/VAX named for the kernel you config'ed, and then in there
the usual make depend , make vmunix, and you're set. 

very cool that its booting!! 
happy hacking,
