     I don't have easy access to the build machine at the moment,
however it went something like:

	Creating syssrc.tgz

/mnt/NetBSD-current/src/tooldir.*/nbmake: can't find /mnt/NetBSD-current/src/tooldir.*/nbcksum [this might have been just cksum]
[repeat for each tar ball]
[abort build]

When I looked in the releasedir I found source/set/{tarballs}.  When I
looked in /mnt/NetBSD-current/src/tooldir.*/ I only found nbmake (none
of the other tools had been build at this point).  The commands used to
start the process were:

cd /mnt/NetBSD-current/src
./ -D /mnt/NetBSD-current/destdir -R /mnt/NetBSD-current/releasedir sourcesets release

I'm guessing it used the system tar/pax to create the tarballs since
there wasn't one in the tooldir.
