Hm, OK.  If the tree has been built as above first, one would
have to do a "...nbmake-i386 cleandir" first.

I think an important part of the excercise was to find the minimal set
of operations one would have to perform to populate and build the boot
medium.  Therefore, I counted "doing a full build" as right out.
