The instructions don't look wrong to me... and the `,,build-order`
file looks correct too.  The last command should take a considerable
amount of time and produce numerous packages.  You can list them
easily with `ls */*.xz`.

It is just a place to build the packages.  The only thing you need to
upload are the built packages, i.e. what is listed with `ls */*.xz`.
