Subject: some cdboot nits

I'm looking at cdboot and its integration into NetBSD, and found that
there are a few things left to do:
* the tool is neither built nor installed by default, this should be
changed (assuming it works!)
* there is no manpage for cdboot, which should explain how to use it,
e.g. what parameters to pass to mkisofs (and makefs, later).
Proper name would probably be i386/cdboot(8).
* how does the name 'cdboot' go with the existing bootxx_* names
in /usr/mdec? Looking around a bit, I wonder if bootxx_cd would be more
in line with the existing names appropriate? Or is bootxx_* only for
use with installboot(8)? They sure are for more things than harddisks,
as bootxx_ustarfs on i386 shows.
Can you please look into these things?
