I'm getting ready to install -current on a new machine, so I decided to 
build myself an install CD with all the pieces.  What is the right way 
to build x11?  I see there's a /usr/src/x11, but a ' distribution'
didn't create any of the X .tgz files.  (I'm not 100% certain about 
whether or not it was built.)

I tried going to /usr/xsrc and doing a 'make release', but that died 
near the very end:

Creating xbase4.tgz
Creating xcomp4.tgz
Creating xcontrib4.tgz
Creating xfont4.tgz
Creating xmisc4.tgz
Creating xserver4.tgz
pax: Unable to access ./usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/savage_drv.o (No such file or directory)
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/xsrc

This is with very current xsrc -- on the third try, I actually got 
through via CVS...
