Yes, some of the tools have slightly grown (e.g, pax). I need to look
at this in the near term.

I'm also in the process of hacking on the floppy build infrastructure
to remove the requirement for vnd's or running as root. It's working
as far as building the ramdisks and stuffing ramdisks into kernels.
