About a year ago, someone changed sys/arch/conf/pmax/Makefile.pmax,
changing the default kernel `netbsd' from being in a format which the
pmax bootblocks could boot, to being in the one format our pmaxes
*cannot* boot.   The bootable ones are now called `netbsd.aout'
and `netbsd.ecoff', and the standard rules dont find them.

Hence the confusion.
