Yes, that's how you create a new OpenBTS binary for a different
band. You'll need to change the ARFCN, too, of course, otherwise it
will probably assert the first time you run it. The parameters
should be obvious and in most cases the binary will assert quickly if
the parameters won't work.
I would recommend submitting this to GNU Radio.
The next major release of the Kestrel distribution will use a
configuration file, but that release won't be public for a few more
Also, the "make install" is only required the first time you build
OpenBTS. All it does is copy a USRP FPGA file to central directory
where the driver can find it. That file never changes and the copy
only needs to happen once.
