In this case the release died near the end (release.9 target).  It was
easy to update the running kernel and reboot.  Now we wanted to restart
the release w/o starting from scratch.  This release build included ports
README's and Docs, and thus takes a very long time to build.  To not have
to start from scratch, I did "chroot ${CHROOT} /bin/sh" and then ran "rm
/tmp/.world_done ; /mk" which should have restarted the release build and
done the mimimum work to finish the release.  It didn't because of the
cross-release commit that removed the installworld w/in the ${CHROOT}.
This bit not only me, but another person also building an Alpha snapshot.
