   - the #ifdef __sparc__ in disklabel(8) can probably go away, as sun3 works
     without it.


if you let disklabel write a NetBSD disklabel to the disk the
sparc will not be able to boot from it.  this is precisely why
the kernel always converts and userland is disabled from writing
a (normal) label.
