Right. This is probably from building new boot floppies on i386.
The build procedure hasn't been updated after the "vnd devices
can (and should) have disklabels" recent changes. I figured out
the procedure I could use manually to create the boot floppy
images to port-i386 earlier today under the subject "floppy image
construction fails". I'll forward a copy of the message
separately to the explicit recipients of this message (except
Jason, who I suspect gets enough mail as it is...).
