A few years ago, I did build a modified release CD for AOS on an AOS
machine.  There are a few drivers without source, due to NDA issues.  I
modified the files to deal with that issue, and also to keep a copy of the
cannonical.whatever.file in addition to the file I had modified.

It took a weekend or so to have a modified release CD that would, in turn,
rebuild itself.  One trick was to have two copies of some files, the
mycopy.whatever and whatever on the CD image.
