This PR is an inquiry of change-request for sysinst (i.e. no patches yet).

Source sets fetch and installation support has been added no January 2012:

But source sets menu is shown during binary set installation and
usually install media doesn't contain source sets, so its settings
are a bit confusing, as filed in PR install/45972:

Now sysinst in 6.0 and later has "post-installation configuration menu"
and it also includes pkgsrc fetch support.
It is completely separated from NetBSD base set binary installation.

So it's much better to move the existing "source sets installation"
into a part of the post-installation configuration menu.

Use sysinst, and try to install both source sets and pkgsrc sources.

Changes should be trivial:
 - Revert the original source fetch menu changes
 - Add source sets installation menu in post-inst config as pkgsrc
