As I initially stated, that is EXACTLY what I was inclined to do except the fact that I
had already an intact /usr/obj and usr/src with a complete compiled system.

I booted from mem stick and I was lost due to no cc!

Even for "make installworld" it seems I have to rely on the compiler. And the images
(ISO, memstick et cetera) provided these days do not contain any clang.

So, I tried /usr/src/release ... for the first time. The image does also not contain the
necessary tools for a full "make installworld installkernel" - not to speak of
"compiling" world. I dodn't work (at least for me). 

I try to figure out how to avoid this crazy and useless shrinking of the ISO images -
somehow when building NanoBSD, there are knobs with which we can prevent the build and/or
installation of subsets like compiler, toolchain et cetera. The way such thing is
provided via src.conf and make.conf is fine and sophisticated. But "RELEASE" seems to
handle things different, and the standard is useless for a rescue mission.

So far.

It might be that I have overlooked something ...
