Correction.  Make sure you

        cd /usr/src/release && \
        make -f /path/to/-CURRENT/usr/src/release/Makefile \
            [re]release ...

before trying to build -CURRENT release on your -STABLE box.
-STABLE's release/Makefile has some incompatibilities, the most
harmless of which is BUILDNAME.
