Note distrib/common/Makefile.bootcd (that is used for iso-image)
doesn't handle specfile for makefs(8) at all, so all files will
have builder's local UID and all setuid/setgid bits are dropped
if is invoked with MKUNPRIVED=yes (or -U option):
# ftp
# vnconfig vnd0 boot.iso 
# mount_cd9660 /dev/vnd0a /mnt
# ls -l /mnt/netbsd
-rw-r--r--  1 611  wheel  5897127 Oct 13 22:53 /mnt/netbsd
# ls -l /mnt/sbin/ping
-r-xr-xr-x  1 611  wheel  31386 Oct 13 22:35 /mnt/sbin/ping
# ls -l /sbin/ping
-r-sr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  31386 Oct 13 22:35 /sbin/ping

For install CDs this won't matter because root is the only expected
user on installation ops (though it also breaks MKREPRO builds),
but it could be problematic on liveimage.

That's the reason why current liveimage target doesn't have
exported such "EXTRA FILES" options yet.
