Do you mean the distfiles here, or the resulting packages?
If talking about the packages, isn't it as simple as moving the 
$CHROOT_DIR/usr/ports/packages into $CHROOT_DIR/R/cdrom and using a similar 
approach as portupgrade? Otherwise an ls */*/*.tbz should print a workable 

If the distfiles, then one can advise in the release manpage, to do:
/usr/src/release/scripts/print-cdrom-packages.sh 1 | xargs portinstall 

and then proceed with RELEASEDISTFILES argument.

Life would be a lot simpler if portupgrade was moved into base :)

Hmm - this is much clearer then:
"Assumes that the output of a release build has been manually modified, and 
performs the minimal number of steps to rebuild the release using the 
intermediate output of the previous ``make release''."

Thanx, I'll see how things go.
