You should simply stop trying to run builds without using build.sh.
Not "run build.sh to X, and then Y". You're going to keep getting
yourself in trouble that way.
Just "run build.sh to X and Y".
So, let's assume you have a kernel configuration named KAKOS.
./build.sh distribution sets kernel=KAKOS
copy the built KAKOS kernel to / -- build.sh will tell you where it is.
go in RELEASEDIR -- /usr/src/releasedir* by default -- and find the
sets for your architecture. for each set EXCEPT etc.tgz,
progress -z -e -f $i cat | (cd / ; tar xpf -)
then run postinstall -s etc.tgz fix
And you're done. In the future, use build.sh kernel=AGATHOS (if your
kernel configuration happens to be AGATHOS) to build your kernel,
not "config" and "make".
