This is possibly related to the PKGINFODIR change I committed to
bootstrap earlier in August.  If you were using a custom setting then
you will need to replicate it with --pkginfodir (or change mk.conf
after bootstrap).

Alternatively, if the info generation tools have hardcoded install-sh
then they will need to be rebuilt after switching to bsdinstall.

The bsdinstall commit log explains it further, but essentially the
install-sh script cannot handle files with spaces in them, which
breaks a reasonable number of packages.  bsdinstall fixes this, and
will be faster / more future-proof.

I've booted up a Sol9 machine and will look at fixing the err.h
failure.  If you aren't bothered about the packages that install-sh
cannot handle, then you can just comment out the use_bsdinstall=yes
line in bootstrap and revert to the previous behaviour.
