    Hello,

    I have been trying to create the FreeBSD installation CD with the following commands:

    Code:
    cd /usr/src/release
    make \
       BUILDNAME=8.2-RELEASE \
       CHROOTDIR=/var/chroot/freebsd/i386 \
       CVSROOT=/var/cvsroot \
       NOPORTS=YES \
       RELEASETAG=RELENG_8_2 \
       TARGET=i386 \
       TARGET_ARCH=i386 \
       release
    

    Everything runs fine except for one thing. For some reason, FreeBSD documents are not packaged and included in the release. I am referring to en-freebsd-doc-20110110.tbz and other packages found in /packages/docs directory of the official installation ISO image that I downloaded from ftp.freebsd.org.

    What am I missing or doing wrong? Perhaps this has got something to do with /usr/doc/release/Makefile, but I have not figured it out yet and I am running out of time.

    Please advise. Your help is appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,
    Boris

    I think I figured it out. The packages come from /usr/ports/misc/freebsd-doc* and are not built with doc/release/Makefile.
