You are right. I forgot to mention I do the last two command with root
permissions. Sorry about that.
And just FYI. Some time ago I tested to build with command
./build.sh <options> tools distribution kernel=GENERIC
and it works also. "tools" can be dropped because "distribution" applies
it if tools are not build. This makes ./build.sh really simple and usefull
to me. Thanks to whoever did it!
