That may not be needed. Only the ARCH variable need to change. And for
sparc we need the BOOTDIR variable.

Why ? Is there an error when trying to make them bootable ?

And even if bootable doesn't work you can still add many things to 
the CD with :
$ make installtools
(which will call make doc and make disks)

How/when does it fail ? If the problem is in the make list step, can you
send me the log.list2cds or log.cds2src (gzipped because they are quite
big) ?

Please note that the status file given with YACS has been generated
with an i386 mirror and that not all archs have all packages so using
potato_status will generate warnings on non-i386. However it should still

« make status || make correctstatus » could be used to generate the status
file (but the generated status file is not perfect until someone can fix
all the section/priority of some packages)

This is likely to cause problems. NONUS=1 is not the contrary of NONUS=0.
:) The NONUS variable should be set (in the CONF.sh file) to the path of
the non-US mirror. If this variable is set, non-US will be included.

And once finished :
$ make imagesums
