Even if it let you add a mount point, it won't mount it!
(it only uses the info to splat over /etc/fstab)

Actually I think newfs will generate a valid Apple UFS filesystem
(given suitable parameters), so maybe it ought to be in the PI_ISBSDFS list!

Actually here, sysinst could do with 'dirty' filesystems failing to mount
so that it can then fsck them.  Could do with it being a specific error
from mount.
