All releases aren't related to kernels, they are just rootfs  optimized for devices. In this case, they are optimized for the compiler.

The generic release hasn't any kind of optimization. You can take a look into development section in the ports/core-arm repository, the overlayed pkgutils port has pkgmk.conf where you'll see only hard float support.
In your case, in ports/cubieboard-arm repository you can verify its cflags and see if they fit to the ones used by the BBB (probably they'll do).

You shouldn't get any problems upgrading your kernel, but if you do, feel free to share them to take a look.

I'll take a look into generic release to verify if libpcre problem is shown because automake isn't installed in this release.

Thank you very much for your reports.
