The prerequisite for a successful "make release" is to "installworld"
first the same world as you are currently running.  This is done to
create a pristine environment (with an empty /etc/make.conf, etc.)
which is then chroot'ed into.

Also, when I wrote "/usr/src" and "/usr/obj" I didn't mean them
literally.  "make world" in /my/src-5 with MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/his/obj
and /his/obj/my/src-5 staffed with the "buildworld" output from
the above should work too.
