	The example provided in src/etc/bootptab is out of date,
	bootpd has needed dummy-entries beginning with '.' for
	the last year or more.
	uncomment the example lines and run bootpd with debugging
	put '.' in front of all dummy-entries and the later references
	i.e. tc=global.dummy ->
	global.dummy:\ -> .global.dummy:\
