Neat. This means that some one of the floppies (which one were you
in the middle of? Is this i386 or something else?) has grown too
large to fit in a floppy. (This recently happened with the macppc
port... We haven't fixed it the ideal way there, which would be to
split the boot floppy there into several, but there are some
OpenFirmware considerations.)

Increasing the size of the vnd would mask the problem, but the
produced image wouldn't fit on a floppy.

Erm, unless I'm confused and that's not actually from the middle of
a floppy build, but rather a dosboot build. (In which case, you may
still be screwed--or, rather, some renovation needs to be done to
make dosboot fit again--presuming that there's some silly size limit
on that too.)
