That works with 1.4.

I think it would be desirable to be able to build the install
floppies/miniroot/install kernel from /usr/src/distrib, and also
invoke 'mtree' to build the head of the release dir from there, 
and I think I could do that. I could only guarantee it, though,
on i386 and mac68k. Is it worth the effort?
