Not really, it is only a few kb oversize.
Unfortunately I don't think I have valid copy of ramdisk-tiny.
(and it only seems to be on embedded in the kernel).

Please can someone who has built one recently send me the contents
of the .ident section of the file?  eg:

$ cd obj/distrib/i386/floppies/ramdisk-tiny
$ objdump -h ramdiskbin|grep ident
 13 .ident        00006d9f  00000000  00000000  00118314  2**0
 14 .note.netbsd.ident 00000030  08048094  08048094  00000094  2**2
$ dd if=ramdiskbin of=/tmp/idents bs=1 skip=0x118314
Then I can work out if I've won another library routine.
