If you don't run this ("install=3D/") as root, it won't work.
If you run this as root without -U, it won't work properly.

Why are you running this last pax?
The contents of /usr/i386build will be owned by the user who did
the build, and there won't be any setid bits because of -U.

I would instead use either (using '$' as non root prompt, and '#' as
the root prompt):
	$ ./ -U -D /usr/i386build distribution
	# ./ -U -D /usr/i386build install=3D/

or build sets with
	$ ./ -U -D /usr/i386build distribution sets
and extract those (except etc.tgz & xetc.tgz).
