I modified src/etc/Makefile & the appropriate architecture makefiles so that
all I have to do is move the stuff in the release directory into their
architecture and 'make iso-image', but it'd be nice to not even have to
do that.

}Actually, with cross-build architecture we are finishing, if we used
}$RELEASEDIR/$MACHINE we can then point multiple concurrent builds at the same
}$RELEASEDIR and automagically get a something similar to multi-arch CD

I'd be willing to do this, and try it, if someone would be willing to look it
over.  Is $MACHINE the appropriate name to use?  Anything else I should watch
out for?  (Or if someone else wants to just get it done, that's fine.)
