I'm doing "make defconfig", which is more or less that. (It doesn't  
switch on selinux and stuff that requires a special build environment,  
but also requires a special runtime environment.)

The "latest" directory is a symlink to the version number directory, so  
in theory if you back up one directory and look there it should tell  
you what latest is. But I can put it in the readme too, sure.
