So I need a way to turn a subset of the contents of /usr/obj
(on a host system) into the set of files that constitute the
base system as available on the RELEASE CDs. These files will
then be fetched via NFS by the embedded devices' sysinstall.

There is certainly some magic in .mk files to do this. I'm just
too blind to find it...
