I remember someone saying that you should build, install and boot (into
single-user maybe) your new kernel before installing the world to ensure
the new kernel operates correctly before installing the world for it. I
do this myself as I think it would be easier to back out the kernel if
it doesn't work, then have to try and back out your complete installworld.

Thus my usual order is

make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel
reboot (boot -s)
make installworld
mergemaster
reboot (normally)

Any other thoughts anyone?
