Hmm I don't *think* it went that way - so far as I recall I built a kernel
and rebooted, then built the release under the new kernel (before
installing new userland that may _require_ the new kernel, always stress
test it :)

also the /var/obj directory was empty upon building the release

In any case, there is only a tooldir.NetBSD-4.99.69-i386 (containing the
just made nbmake) and the /usr/tools directory (containing the tools dated
yesterday when the build started) and no other tool directory. surely if a
tool directory is being made, it would use the version number of the
source code and not the version number of the running kernel..?

and yes, using "-T /usr/tools" let me install just fine but I don't think
it should be necessary.
