make release question

I have a FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 machine. I want to create a release
from that system to install FreeBSD on other machines. I have been
reading the handbook about how to make a release and I have a question.
As far as I understood, the way to create a relese could be:

# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# cd release
# make release CHROOTDIR=/local3/release BUILDNAME=5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 \

Is that correct?

I have doubts about the CVSROOT variable. As far as I understood, that
variable points to the cvsrepository where you have the sources you want
to use to create the release. In my case in /usr I have the
5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 sources.

Well, launching the above commands I get the following error:

>>> Installing everything..
cd /usr/src; make -f Makefile.inc1 install
===> share/info
install -o root -g wheel -m 444  dir-tmpl
===> include

Touch is in /usr/bin which in the root path.
Can some want help me with this?

Thank you.
