Mmm, no.  I ran a full release build, then went to
distrib/i386/cdroms/bootcd and ran this there:

$ nbmake-i386 clean dependall release CDRELEASE=true

Seeing the failure I recreated the image by running makefs manually as
distrib/common/Makefile.bootcd's "image" target says and it failed the
same way.  (That's where I added the 'rockridge' option, but haven't
committed it because of the other problem that appeared.)

I can check it again, but I think that mounting the generated image
straight under Linux also exposed the same problems.  (I'm not sure
about the first one but the file name's case was surely not preserved

(Note that I'm crossbuilding from Linux, but I doubt this matters at all.)
