Running "./ -x -X /usr/xsrc release" for i386 fails with an 
error message, that basically says "Image is too big to fit on a single 
floppy" or something like that:

*** Failed target:  boot-tiny1.fs
*** Failed command: 
PAX=/usr/src.10072004/tooldir.NetBSD-2.0F-i386/bin/nbpax sh /us

/bootxx_ustarfs" -p -m 1 -s .fs boot-tiny 2400 boot USTAR.volsize.4540 
*** Error code 1

I usually fix it by editing 
"/usr/src/distrib/i386/floppies/bootfloppy-tiny/Makefile" and adding the 
following line to it:


I'm sure some people are aware of this problem, as it keeps showing up 
over and over again. I don't fully understand the build process and 
adding "FLOPPYMAX= 2" could be an ugly hack. What do you think would be 
a correct way to solve this?
