Correct.  We've talked about enhancing the scripts so that this gets
included automatically, but it can be problematic since the source
location of the packages might be unknown at the time of the build.

The 'rerelease' target will start up a build where it left off, without
cleaning the CHROOTDIR area first.  The RELEASENOUPDATE flag will
prevent the scripts for doing a cvs update on the tree.  Both of these
are useful for restarting a paused build.  Also, depending on what
actions you want to modify or restart, you might need to remove certain
makefile marker files at $CHROOTDIR/usr/obj/usr/src/release.
