I follow the build guide at I got latest code by bzr command.

I run "make distclean && make config" then filled all question mark item and checked pcc & binutils. I check Makefile.config the CONFIG_PCC = y & CONFIG_BINUTILS = y

Then run "make -C release release PROFILES=ia32" However the final ISO image in release directory doesn't include pcc & binutils. I check /var/tmp/helenos/HelenOS-0.4.3/Makefile.config. But the CONFIG_PCC = n and CONFIG_BINUTILS = n

I guess the make system don't copy Makefile.config to $(EXPORT_DIR). But it create a one for it.

I am afraid you misunderstood what make release does. It does not use the normal configuration, but one from the profile. So if you want to make a profile, which automatically includes pcc and binutils, you need to create one. Take a look e.g. in defaults sparc64 to see how to specify a profile with non-default settings.

There is also one caveat with the choice of the root fs. Now when support LFN, we can enable pcc and binutils also for FAT.

Updated the guide to make it more clear. For building release files this is exactly what we want. And we should not tweak the profiles locally before a release either. It should work in the upstream.
