Ooops! I've mixed up build.sh and top-level Makefile syntax
(not enough sleep lately)
To build a distribution to /some/dir, & then install to /, try:
./build.sh -D /some/dir -d -i /
If you've already built to a destdir with build.sh, you could speed
things up with
./build.sh [various options] -D /destdir -b -i /
which effectively just does "make installworld" without the "make build"
