	The NetBSD/pmax release build omits the following items:

	* Release notes
	* Installation media (i.e. miniroot image)
	* Installation kernel with miniroot image in RAM disk.

	An "nfsnetbsd.gz" is created during the release process which
	appears to be the INSTALL kernel config, but it contains no
	RAM disk image, and thus is almost completely useless.  It's
	also not obvious what should be done with this strangely named
	file, due to lack of release notes.

	Build NetBSD/pmax release.  Attempt to use it in any
	meaningful way.

	Not provided.  Look at NetBSD/alpha for an example of a
	working miniroot build framework.

simonb@ says this is pretty much fixed - there are release notes and a
proper disk image, and nfsnetbsd.gz has gone away. Do you have any further
