Please do not commit things to the release Makefile so hastily without
waiting for review.  I already suggested in another e-mail that combining
the fixit and boot floppies was a bad idea and that the existing release.10
should have been release.11 and release.10 should just build boot floppies
and not go near the fixit stuff.
