Well, needs better documentation. Also, I've been using "make build"
since NetBSD 0.9 back in 1994, and it works quite well on my Dell SMP
server which is now running NetBSD 1.6ZC as of last week or so. It also
works well on my 1.5.x and 1.6.x sparc and i386 machines.

I'm impressed with this new box. A Duron 1.3ghz is a lot faster than a
P200 MMX! With the old box, it took about 9.5 hours to build.
