Customizing a 'make release'...

(If this question is better served on another list, let me know)

I am trying to come up with a custom FreeBSD ISO w/ my personal 
preferences (no integrated OpenSSH, Heimdal, or Sendmail)  I have been 
working off of, and 

/usr/bin/time sh -c 'make release CHROOTDIR=/hog0/release NODOC=YES
RELEASETAG=RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE' | & tee /tmp/release.log

Now my understanding is that 'make release' honors the variables set 
in /etc/make.conf, where I have:


After creating the binaries and the ISO image, installing the OS on a new 
box results in a sendmail-less install, but it still has all the OpenSSH 
and Heimdal bits included.  Do I needed to declare NO_OPENSSH and 
NO_KERBEROS on the 'make release' command line?

Also, is there any way to change the default bits the install process -  
like the default auto-partition (I prefer to leave the /var partition 
with the remaining space instead of /usr as it is now), and have it 
automatically install certain packages instead of asking.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can pass along...

Best Wishes - Peter
