Shouldn't a make release (or build.sh -R, rather) with the new
toolchain do this?
Oh, but it won't create executables for the i386. Right.
It'd be nice if there were a clean, supported way to do this,
The disklabel, as has been pointed out, is a non-issue with FFS-EI.
It'd be nice if installboot could get smarter.
