Okay, I just thought that using chroot to build release is a bit weird :-)

As a side note, my real concern is that, it seems that our build
infrastructure can not bootstrap itself very easily, say it's not "that"
self-contained as I imagined.  After installing a gcc 3.4.6 from ports
collection and override CC/CXX variables, I found that some of the
installed headers and bsd.*.mk is still used during the build, making it
very hard to produce successful build without heavy hack to the source
tree.  I think it's time for me to pursue more about our build skeleton...
