I typically use:
setenv CVSROOT foo
time make -DNOPORTS -DNODOC -DMAKE_ISOS release CHROOTDIR=/usr/release
EXTSRCDIR=/usr/src > & /tmp/release.out
This presumes you've already done a buildworld in /usr/src; it will also
use that version of the source code, rather than pulling everything down
from the CVS server. Because of the way the release process uses a
chroot environment, it's still going to have to re-build everything. So,
it's quite a time-intensive operation no matter how many shortcuts you take.
