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.
