I'm building a macppc snapshot, and ran into this doing make

vnconfig -t floppy -v -c vnd0 boot.fs
/dev/rvnd0c: 1474560 bytes on boot.fs using geometry 512/18/2/80
disklabel -f /build/etc/disktab -rw vnd0 floppy
newfs -B be -m 0 -o space -i 56000 -c 80 -f 512 -b 4096 /dev/rvnd0a
/dev/rvnd0a:    2880 sectors in 80 cylinders of 2 tracks, 18 sectors
        1.4MB in 1 cyl groups (80 c/g, 1.41MB/g, 32 i/g)
super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:
mount /dev/vnd0a /mnt
cp /build/usr/mdec/ofwboot /mnt/boot
cp netbsd.ram.gz /mnt/netbsd

/mnt: write failed, file system is full
cp: /mnt/netbsd: No space left on device
*** Error code 1

What's the "right" thing to do in order to get a complete snapshot
in this situation? Prune down the floppy kernel config?
