This looks as if you want to create your own installation
media. The "make release" operation is intended for that
task. See /usr/src/Makefile, as well as "man 7 release"
for details. I think the manpage explains the process
very well. There are targets available for creating the
ISO images (and defining what their content should be,
e. g. separate media for packages), and anything you
then need is to burn the results to the required media
(CD or DVD).

There is also good documentation that goes into detail,
it can be found here:

    hope that's okay.
