	In 1997, the University of California, Berkeley issued a statement
	retroactively relicensing all code held under their copyright from
	a 4-clause 'traditional' BSD license to a new 3-clause 'revised' BSD
	license, which removed the advertising clause. The license texts in
	the NetBSD CVS tree are misleading, as they still have the old version
	with 4 clauses. Per instructions from the Board of The NetBSD
	Foundation, I am submitting a set of patches which corrects this (by
	revising the license text, and splitting it in cases where UCB is not
	the only holder of Copyright listed in the license).

	This PR is for the files in sbin/.
