System: Target: amd64 4.99.72 -current as of yesterday
Architecture: amd64
Machine: amd64
        I'm trying to fix bugs preventing the installation of NetBSD
        on a HP ProLiant BL460c G1 system, using the amd64 port.

        This system typically wants an ISO image to boot from.

        I'm trying to use the in-tree methods to replicate the parts
        of the build which is creating the boot.iso image, but for
        some reason that I can't seem to fathom, I appear to be unable
        to make the build work as intended.

        I've found distrib/amd64/cdrom/bootcd/, which appears to
        describe the build procedure used.  However, doing an UPDATE
        build using "nbmake-amd64" in distrib/amd64/, the build
        creates the new ramdisk and the new netbsd-INSTALL.gz file,
        but the build in cdroms/bootcd/ etc. fail to pick up the new
        kernel and do not appear to do any work.  Also, doing
        "nbmake-amd64 release" does not install the new (or old) iso
        images.  Here's excerpts of the build log:

        You'll note that it dutifully created the new boot floppies,
        but alas, no new bootcd iso image.

        Doing "nbmake-amd64 prepare" in cdroms/bootcd/ does indeed
        copy in the new netbsd INSTALL kernel to the OBJDIR, but
        if I thereafter do an "nbmake-amd64 dependall" in the same
        directory, nothing is done (no new iso image is created).
        I smell a missing dependency tracking allowing UPDATE builds
        to work as intended.

        I'm also somewhat surprised that there's no top-level target
        to to create the boot images; the iso-image target
        from bundles up the RELEASEDIR contents, and does not
        pick up the new INSTALL kernel I just built...

        See above.

        Sorry, this appears to be above what I'm able to figure out.
