I definitely agree with Andrew that there is no need to overthink the name of the set. While "modules.tgz" might not reflect the exact reality, it is well know what it is about, and I don't think there'd be any confusion about it. My idea about build.sh vs. modules was: - provide a modules.tgz set - have a build.sh target to build and install modules (I don't think there is much gain splitting it in two targets) - add an option to build.sh's sets and install targets to only install the sets listed, so you'd use e.g. ./build.sh -s modules install=/. -- Quentin Garnier - cube%cubidou.net@localhost - cube%NetBSD.org@localhost "See the look on my face from staying too long in one place [...] every time the morning breaks I know I'm closer to falling" KT Tunstall, Saving My Face, Drastic Fantastic, 2007.
