A heads up!

I've changed the default order in the sparc from
"bootparams then bootp" to "bootp then bootparams", and I've
enabled NFS_BOOT_DHCP in the sparc GENERIC and INSTALL kernels.

This is for consistency with other NetBSD ports.

(bootparams still works as a fallback, although I've found that
our dhcpd is easier to configure and debug than our rpc.bootparamd)
