Hi Chris,

Thanks for the response.

I'm a bit confused on this then, as using the full FreeBSd 12.1 RELEASE
distro, I was able to build a 90MB image of the mfsBSD with no problems and
then it seems that you actually have to do a "make clean", "make extract
BASE= ....." and then "cd into" the mini directory to do the "make iso
....", but some of the applications are not there.

I will try as you suggest also
Cheers
