I've built twice in the last week and both release builds on x86
went fine.

My alias to kick stuff off is:

alias bui='sh -O /usr/obj/`uname -m`/obj -R /usr/obj/`uname -m`/release -D /usr/obj/`uname -m`/build -T /usr/obj/`uname -m`/tools'

Then I can just 

cd /usr/src
bui -U -u release

In both builds (desktop and a laptop) both went fine without errors and X
also built to release sets without error.
