 I've put updated one:
 The following two problems are workarounded:
 >  - images will be installed into releasedir, but they should not be included
 >    in iso-image (i.e. distrib/common/Makefile.bootcd needs to be updated)
 Now distrib/common/Makefile.bootcd explicitly excludes
 installation/liveimage dir from iso images.
 >  - race in ${MAKESUMS} in Makefile.liveimage if ${MACHINE} has multiple 
 > images
 Fixed by invoking distrib/Makefile via "${MAKEDIRTARGET} etc live-image"
 from src/Makefile and also call ${MAKESUMS} from etc/Makefile after
 all images are ready.
 Also fixed one bug, wrong NetBSD partition size in MBR partition.
 The following problems should still be discussed:
 >  - can we really call images which just boot up to multiuser "live image"?
 >  - needs better image names (rather than sun3emu.img etc.)
 >  - too many dumb statements in Makefile.liveimage (needs sh and make gurus)
 >  - makefs during building images fails if release binaries are built without
 >    MKUNPRIVED=yes, (i.e. -U) because
 >    destdir/etc/mtree/set.* must have permission info for makefs(8)
 >  - and needs more thoughts and cleanup...
