The makefile itself is pretty easy to read.

"make build" does the right thing -- it installs the .mk files,
includes, libraries, etc. in more or less the right order.

The only caveat I give is that one should always build a new kernel
and boot it FIRST before doing a make build. Otherwise new syscalls
being used by your userland will cause you to die badly...
