The relevant one.

Wrote a couple of weeks back:
The resulting VFS root should have /vms$common.
(Added that line to HOWTO)

It is only the beginning of the FreeVMS user environment.

It is just a build example, to be used to be able to rebuild as
automatically as possible. (Not to be used literally)

Where did you get that impression?
With a fresh kernel, always do make config before bzImage.

The HOWTO states something about doing make bzImage twice

It is also possible to do a make bzImage after make dep fails.

(That fault may be removed some time in the future)

If it does not compile, the HOWTO says something about stripping away
some configs.

Thanks for doing this walk-through.
