There is plenty in the way of "build distribution" tools, and they are
actually pretty easy to use. They are not 100% as automated as they
should be, but they are pretty good. "make build" builds
everything. /usr/src/distrib contains most of the auxilliary stuff --
the sets stuff is in /usr/src/distrib/sets
I know, it isn't sufficiently documented...
