Do release ISOs (such as NetBSD-7.0.2-macppc.iso) work as expected?
macppc ISOs from non-release snapshots are not expected to be bootable,
because makefs isn't up to the task of creating a bootable image. We
work around this for releases by manually generating macppc images. It
sucks and could be automated on the build cluster, but it's a really low
priority issue for me, so I haven't done so. Besides, that would still
leave macppc ISOs broken for people building locally.
IIRC, what's missing in makefs is the ability to create hybrid
HFS/ISO9660 images. tsutsui@ knows more.
