For this specific example:

1) build tools to ${TOOLDIR}
2) build the kernel used by bootfloppy-big (INSTALL, I think)
3) cd to the above dir; cd ../ramdisk-big; and do
   ${TOOLDIR}/bin/nbmake-i386 dependall
4) cd ../bootfloppy-big; ${TOOLDIR}/bin/nbmake-i386 dependall

Hm, possibly you need to build the boot code as well (?)
