I have some changes in my working copy (as yet uncommitted) which break
This is just moving stuff around, no substantive changes to the logic.
Here are the logic changes I want to do:
- all the arch-level stuff should be broken into make.<arch> files
- building, say, the compact 1.44 root disk should build the file
right into release/images-1.44/compact/root.bin; this would
eliminate the evil coupling between releases.sh and the top-level
However, I'm a little hestitant to do this, or have someone else work
on it, until we have the system building on woody, which right now,
means having it build with the pools.

Pretty much I'm doing the same thing, but where you're using a prefix
of 'build/Makefile.' I'm using a prefix of 'make.*'.
