Thanks for the quick reply.

I see this in the Makefile, but if I were to use KERNELS=MYKERNEL will
that prevent the other standard kernels from being built?

LOCAL_PATCHES is what I'm using now (waiting for build to finish to see
how it worked). I was hoping for a way to populate the src tree without
doing a full release so I could create the patches, then run make release
only once (it took 5 hours on my devel system last time). At this point
I've already done that, but for the next time I'd like to work more
BTW, I see I overlooked the RELEASENOUPDATE variable in the man page, so
that answers my question about preventing CVS updates on "make rerelease".
Unfortunately make rerelease didn't rebuild anything in /R/stage (I got
"ftp.1 is up to date"). Am I supposed to delete the stage directories to
force a rebuild, or do I need to do a full release to incorporate any
