Sounds like you don't really want to build a release at all. Use "-d"
instead. If you still want the tarballs, you could "make sets" in
"distrib/sets" after the build is done. "-R" is used to build
snapshots for distribution. It builds just the kernels that the
sysinstall binaries know what to do with, and there's no knob to make
it do otherwise.
