In etc/Makefile, there is a description of the variables
KERNEL_SETS, EXTRA_KERNELS, BUILD_KERNELS.
The etc/etc.i386/Makefile has
BUILD_KERNELS= INSTALL INSTALL_SMALL INSTALL_TINY \
and the definition is:
# BUILD_KERNELS Additional kernels to build which are
# not placed into sets nor into the
# binary/kernel area of the release
# package. These are typically kernels
# that are built for inclusion only in
# installation disk/CD-ROM/tape images.
yet they appear in binary/kernel along with RESCUE_SMALL, RESCUE_TINY which
aren't mentioned in etc.i386/Makefile at all. I would have expected
INSTALL* and RESCUE* to be added to EXTRA_KERNELS for that to happen.
How can this be?
