OK, I changed the sun3 boot programs: netboot, ufsboot
again so now they look for the following file names:

	"netbsd", "netbsd.old",	"netbsd.$arch"

which appears to comply (somewhat) with the alpha and i386.
(It uses an array of names now.  Add names as you wish!:)

I had to rework the main routine quite a bit, so it's now
a little larger but not huge (156 lines in the whole file).
Anyway, main is now large enough that I got tired of keeping
netboot/boot.c and ufsboot/boot.c in sync and replaced them
with a common libsa/xxboot.c plus some Makefile magic.
