	It's no longer possible to make a boot floppy.
	cd /usr/distrib; make
		This fails because linking libhack.o duplicates all .o
		files.  If you fix this my hand and continue.
	cd i386/floppies/bootfloppy; make
		This fails because a bunch of _yp related symbols are
		duplicated.  I'm not sure what the right fix is, but
		it looks like something broke with the weak symbols, perhaps.
	Wish I knew.
