The build-from-scratch mode now works to produce tar-balls and ISOs :-)
However, I noticed that after building a clean amd64 tool-chain, it does
fetch the amd64 GIT packages and dependencies (~76MB in all) before
building 'all' for the target. No big deal but I usually prefer to build
everything locally.

The build-from-existing mode fails with ..

imb_at_vm01:/usr/src/release> sudo ./ -c release-i386.conf
fatal: not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /usr)
Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).
umount: /usr/local/release-builds/i386/dev: not a file system root directory

Many thanks for your efforts!
