If you haven't used UNPRIVED, use pax to copy:
	pax -rwvpe . /

If you used UNPRIVED, there's a way to do it (which I posted about a
while ago; I'm sure I could dig up the code if you can't find the
message in the archives), but I ususally find it's easier to go to
distrib/sets after a make build, make the sets, and extract those.
