Hi.  sun2 and sun3 can share the same bootblocks, some header and code
files, so we plan on making a shared directory for them, probably
named sys/arch/sun68k.

To make "#include <sun68k/disklabel.h>" work when compiling kernels,
config(8) needs to set up an appropriate symlink.  I'd like to add an
optional third field to machine_spec in the grammar, so I can say
"machine sun2 m68k sun68k" in my std.sun2.

This field would be completely optional.  It might be useful to the
hpc* ports too?  Comments?  Thanks -
