	ofwboot.xcf built from -current causes my G4/733 (quicksilver) to
	fail to load the kernel.  after printing info about text/data sizes,
	etc., it displays a failure to "CLAIM" (i have not written down the
	error message yet) and doesn't work.  1.6.1 ofwboot.xcf works fine.


	notice that your very old ofwboot.elf needs updating because it was
	passing bogus symbol data (causing ksyms_init() to crash.)  update it
	to the most handy you have (a recent -current build.)  see it go boom.
	try 1.6.1 and see it work fine.
