Sure thing. I've started a build with everything in make.conf commented
out. It typically failed about 6 or 7 hours into the build so I'll check

It's an NFS mount from a file server that's tight on space,
unfortunately. If it comes to that I'll just wipe and pull down fresh
without keeping the backup copy, all I should need is my kernel config

Thanks for looking into this,
