 STATUS  
      This document is a work-in-progress.  As such, the information described  
      here may not match the reality of the build system as of this writing.  
      Once this document is completely in sync with reality, this paragraph  
      will be removed.  
   
      Discrepancies between this documentation and the current reality of  
      implementation are noted specially, as with the note below:  
   
      Note: This document applies only to platforms which use the new toolchain  
      as indicated by the default setting of TOOLCHAIN_MISSING in <bsd.own.mk>.  
      Platforms which have not yet been switched to the new toolchain should  
      continue building traditionally, using the notes specified in the file  
      UPDATING.

        iso-image-source
                      Create a NetBSD installation CD-ROM image in the
                      RELEASEDIR/iso directory.  The CD-ROM file system will have
                      a layout as described in release(7).  It will have top
                      level directories for the machine type and source.
   
                      For most machine types, the CD-ROM will be bootable, and
                      will automatically run the sysinst(8) menu-based installa-
                      tion program, which can be used to install or upgrade a
                      NetBSD system.  Bootable CD-ROMs also contain tools that
                      may be useful in repairing a damaged NetBSD installation.
   
                      Before ``make iso-image-source'' is attempted, RELEASEDIR
                      must be populated by ``make sourcesets release'' or equiva-
                      lent.
   
                      Note that other, smaller, CD-ROM images may be created in
                      the RELEASEDIR/MACHINE/installation/cdrom directory by
                      ``make release''.  These smaller images usually contain the
                      same tools as the larger images in RELEASEDIR/iso, but do
                      not contain additional content such as the distribution
                      sets.
   
                      Note that the mac68k port still uses an older method of
                      creating CD-ROM images.  This requires the mkisofs(1) util-
                      ity, which is not part of NetBSD, but which can be
                      installed from pkgsrc/sysutils/cdrtools.
