System: NetBSD handy.localnet 1.4.1 NetBSD 1.4.1 (HANDY) #6:
Tue Aug 31 02:39:07 CDT 1999

	Besides the fact the "make" in /usr/src/distrib doesn't
	even try to build a ramdisk, "cd /usr/src/distrib; make;
	cd /usr/src/distrib/i386/floppies; make" fails as follows:

(cd /usr/src/distrib/i386/floppies/ramdisk/../../../../usr.sbin/mbrlabel; make m
brlabel.o dkcksum.o)

	As above. 
	Wish I knew. There are so many levels of "includes" and
	""'s that it's almost impossible to follow.

	I feel strongly that "cd /usr/src/distrib; make
	RELEASE=/usr/Release release" should, at the very least,
	make and install the root of the release under /usr/Release,
	i.e.  run "mtree" under /usr/Release, and build and install
	the notes and the install floppies there, too. Even nicer
	would be a "distrib target", that depends on "release",
	then does

	(cd ../src; make EXPORTABLE_SYSTEM= release)
	(cd ../xsrc; make build && make release)
	(cd ../src/${CRYPTO}; make release)

	filling in the missing pieces, as required.
