Sounds good. I think we should add "one-arch" CD images to release(7).
I expect they would be a very popular item on the FTP site.
For now, use etc/Makefile. I am really close to prototyping a unified distrib/
and I'd appreciate it if there were no new files in there that might conflict.
Long term, I think etc/Makefile should restrict itself to populating DESTDIR,
and pretty much everything else (stuff that goes into RELEASEDIR) should move
to distrib. This could potentially eliminate the etc/etc.*/Makefile.inc
fragments by moving them to distrib, and leave etc/Makefile totally MI.

What is wrong with trusting the path? Wouldn't this be the typical method:
MKISOFS?= mkisofs # not in base system; see pkgsrc/sysutils/mkisofs
