Yep - I remembered that, and just grabbed it. However, it's not just
that -- on an XO you

 ./configure --prefix /usr
 make && make install
 dracut --opts-as-in-kernel-post
 obc-makekey os
 obc-sign-os to sign the initramfs and kernel
 cp initramfs and signature files to /bootpart/boot

I am documenting it in the README. It's a fairly long story for anyone
to just figure out on their own.

Spec there isn't stale, I compared them.

Out build toolchains and dev/build environments are extremely specific
and brittle. Without some notes, it's pretty hard (and timeconsuming)
to get going...
