It looks to me like src/release/makefile builds the tar file ssys.tar
by just tarring /usr/src/sys and therefore would in fact be missing
/usr/src/Makefile and /usr/src/Makefile.inc1 necessary for "make
Taking a look at the tar file:
cat ssys.a?? > ssys.tar && tar tvf ssys.tar
I see that only files in /usr/src/sys are included.
We could add a tar -r -f .. /usr/src/Makefile /usr/src/Makefile.inc1
to release.7 in /usr/src/release/Makefile to automatically add these
two files as a special case to the ssys distribution. CCing re@ for
any comments on that proposal.
