As a result, all the sets seem to be archives of the entire DESTDIR with

The various "" files looked very close in size (as are all of the
set archives themselves).  All of the "" files differ from one
another only in which "" file has an entry in it and that some
otherwise identical entries differ only by the word "optional" at the
end.  They are otherwise line-by-line identical.

This is consequence of a bug in src/distrib/sets/join.awk revision 1.5. join.awk revision 1.6 reverts the problematic change, so if you have join.awk revision 1.4 or 1.6, then you should be OK, but if you have revision 1.5 then you will have this problem.
