You can very easily build a full installation from anything *NIX. I have
recently built the full VAX installation from my Linux laptop.

Once you have the source tree, cd to src and use build.sh

My commands were:

./build.sh -m vax -T ../tools/vax -U -u tools

and then

./build.sh -m vax -T ../tools/vax -U -u release

I think you can do it all at once but that is how I did.

You will get xtools in the tools directory and everytning needed for an

$ ls releasedir/vax/binary/sets/
BSDSUM  CKSUM  MD5  SHA512  SYSVSUM  base.tgz  comp.tgz  etc.tgz
games.tgz  kern-GENERIC.MP.tgz  kern-GENERIC.tgz  man.tgz  misc.tgz
tests.tgz  text.tgz

$ ls releasedir/vax/binary/kernel/

$ ls releasedir/vax/installation/
bootfs/  miniroot/  netboot/
