I wonder: on the build.sh -j6 release run before hitting the .profile
problem mentioned, I hit something like pax: no such directory and
now of course I can't remember which one but it was in DESTDIR and
had <arch> in it, and possibly even "include". Looking on the
filesystem, that directory *did* exist. The point there is that I
started from a newfs'd /usr/obj, with no obj.i386 links in /usr/src.
Running build.sh -j6 -o -u release got passed that warning and on
to the .profile problem. Rerunning again got me a successful build :-)
