umm, this is a side effect of the fact that i forgot to put some
make directived into .../src/sys/arch/i386/floppy/Makefile.

to get around it:

remount your file systems (e.g. 'mount -a'),
cd into your source tree, into src/sbin/init, remake init, and install it.

basically, i'm in the process of automating the build of e.g. kernel floppies.
to do this, it's really useful (i.e. saves a lot of space) to strip
'unneeded' functionality out of certain programs (like 'init' -- who's
going to want to boot multiuser off of a distribution floppy!).  However,
i forgot to check in the change which would keep this wrom overwriting
the normal binaries, if 'make install' were done!

the solution to the latter problem will be in tomorrow's source tree,
and i explained it in a previous message.

sorry for the trouble!
