Note that using -d precludes using -R (well precludes making a release).
Since the -R is later in the command line, you get what you want, but you
don't need it.

I especially set TOOLDIR since otherwise the tools are built into a
date-specific tool dir. The latter's good for keeping different versions
of the tools around, but I don't need that usually.

Note when you use tar, make sure you set 'p' for preserve (tar xzvpf file)
as otherwise sticky bits won't get set. Then set-id binaries won't work.
