' tools' builds host versions of disklabel(8) and fdisk(8).
The makefs/disklabel/fdisk/installboot quartet comes in handy when you
are cross-building boot media without superuser privileges.  Just for
example, I build CompactFlash boot media for NetBSD wireless routers on
Linux, using makefs/disklabel/fdisk/installboot.

Please give the disklabel/fdisk host-tools a try for all of your favorite
build hosts (NetBSD, FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris?) and targets (macppc,
sparc64, i386).
