This has changed in the last week.  It was taking me a great deal of
time to switch between GTA02 and GTA03 kernel builds, so I changed the
build script to use the O= kernel makefile parameter to keep the object
files and configs for the builds in different subdirs.


This reduces the time needed to switch typically to just 10 - 20 seconds
or so.  It requires the subdir name to be given in the first parameter
as described in the changed build script.

The optional "dummy" parameter to signal that you want a module tarball
is then the second parameter now.  It sounds like the combination of the
Wiki and the comments and error help in the build script led to you some
kind of hybrid solution, but the idea is you would have a GTA02 subdir
with suitable config and build that with ./build GTA02, while having a
GTA03 subdir with different config and build that with ./build GTA03.
