After a "make build" (or equivalent), do:

	cd /usr/src/etc
	$TOOLDIR/bin/nbmake-${MACHINE} distribution

		# make the sets
	cd /usr/src/distrib/sets
	$TOOLDIR/bin/nbmake-${MACHINE} maketars

It is not necessary to build the kernels (which is performed by the
"snap_kern" target in etc/Makefile) to build the release .tar.gz sets...
