I didn't have old enough disklabel sources around, will check there.
It looks to me that installboot does exactly what disklabel -B did after

Changed to use only one bootblock file on VAX.
Vax only have one bootblock which is installed in the first 16 sectors
on the disk.
The boot block is the same for all different disk types. Which is nice :-)
Right. However, the real problem is that installboot does not use block
0 from xxboot. installboot instead have a structure defined with some
"magic" fields, and installboot only changes one or two values in the
boot block when you run it. It does copy block 1 and up from xxboot, but
it totally skips block 0 of xxboot.
