I've committed a change to perform this.  You'll need an up to date
install(8) and mtree(8) in TOOLDIR to use this.  You'll probably want
to delete DESTDIR as well, just to be safe.

As part of that change, I sped up the "parsing metalog" operation of
maketars, from ~ 30 seconds to 1 second on my P3-600, which will
speed up the "maketars" and "installsets" targets in distrib/sets.
