It would be much easier to write the documentation if there were more
consistency.  Even if mac68k still used mkisofs, could you get it to
place its output in RELEASEDIR/iso like all the others?

Also, I notice that the use of RELEASEDIR/iso is not sanctioned
by release(7).  Should the release(7) man page be updated to
allow RELEASEDIR/iso, or should make iso-image be changed to use
RELEASEDIR/MACHINE/installation/cdrom?  (I lean towards changing
release(7) to allow the use of RELEASEDIR/iso)
