No, and I'd rather not add a specific option to enable this,
because I would rather not give people this rope when there
are other methods, primarily "extract etc.tgz" (see below.)

You could change the "installworld" target in src/Makefile to allow
you to pass in a different value for ${INSTALLSETS}, and then
invoke make or with INSTALLSETS="list of sets including etc".
This would require ~ 2 lines of change in src/Makefile...

After building a distribution (which is what './ install=...' needs),
	./ sets
and extract the resultant etc.tgz.
