Yes, there is.

No. The tools target only builds the toolchain used to build everything
The equivalent of 'make world' would be 'build', but build.sh also offers
several other targets, such as distribution and and install.
My typical update path is the following:
./build.sh distribution (implies tools)
(reboot with new kernel)
