Ah, I didn't realized you wanted to do that. If you do want to use sysinstall,
then you do indeed to use make release. The various NO* options documented in
the release(7) manpage and the makefile should be useful here.
That said, I can't imagine why you'd want sysinstall to be involved in
a automated benchmark system. Doing what it does using a hand rolled
script is way easier then trying work with it.
