Only to questions@, not a current@ topic IMO.

You should have CVS repository itself to build a release with tools
under plain src/release/*.

ctodd> build command :
ctodd> make release CHROOTDIR=/usr/release BUILDNAME=4.7-RELEASE-p10
ctodd> CVSROOT=/usr/src

Your /usr/src is an 'extracted source tree', not a 'CVS repository'.
Consult cvsup(1) about how to fetch a repository via cvsup.
