I think the right target for this would be "iso_image" and not "dependall".
This is typically done after dependall have been run though the whole tree.

' release' will build a release, including binary sets and INSTALL
kernel with embeded ramdisk.
' iso-image' will take whatever exists in the sets directory and
build a cd image with it. It won't try to update kernels or binaries.
