How to create qemu images?

However, this is not working so well for me.

Doing make vm-release does absolutely nothing.
Running -c release.conf gives me an error that /scratch/usr/src
and  /scratch/dev does not exist.

What is the prerequisites for building the images? Do I need to make
install in some dest folder first?
Do I need a jail to point chrootdir to?
