install/47684: sysinst once again prints "(null)"

Since the commits of 2013-03-19 22:16:53 through 22:16:55 by garbled,
the output from sysinst contains the string "(null)". It occurs after
the "Add a user" menu item, as in the following example output
(non-printable terminal control characters have been replaced by
k: Add a user^[[15;56H(null)^M^M
Since the typical cause for (null) occurring in program output
is the illegal passing of a null pointer to a printf %s format,
I'm assuming this is a bug.
The reason the PR synopsis says "once again" is to distinguish
it from the long since fixed PR 6432.
Do an "anita install" of a -current i386 build, redirecting output to a
log file, and run fgrep -c '(null)' on the log file. Presumably doing
a manual install will also work.
