At a minimum, should have an option to do that, to get the
proper path for the toolchain, since these instructions can fail:

# cd sys/modules
# make
all ===> miniroot
#   compile  miniroot/miniroot.o

Perhaps a '-l' option meaning 'build modules'?

Or -- how much compile-time is involved?  Is there any reason to avoid
building them?  We build all sets, even for folks who don't want to install,
say, games.tgz.
