There is no ISO for Owl-current yet. So, the only option you have is to
mirror /pub/Owl/current/i386 directory from one of Openwall mirrors. You
can accomplish this by issuing "mir -L i386" in your lftp client. Next
thing you needed is native.tar.gz.

For example, you are already switched under 'build' account:

$ lftp
cd ok, cwd=/pub/Owl/current
lftp> mir -L i386
lftp> get native.tar.gz
lftp> quit              
$ ln -s i386/RPMS
$ tar xzf native.tar.gz
$ vi native/Owl/build/installworld.conf
$ make installworld

You're done :)
