i've just committed a fix to distrib/* that should fix this.

(the kernel & userland have both grown slightly since 1.6, and i
suspect the latest enhancements to pax put ramdisk-tiny.fs "over the
edge".  it turns out that a bunch of space can be saved on that image
by not compiling INET6 support into the tools, since the kernel on
that floppy doesn't have INET6 support).
