The webpage doesn't list use of makefs instead of mkisofs,
and the VAX port was not changed to use makefs (at least not by me),
only i386 and amd64 were, as far as bootable ISOs are provided in addition 
to the floppies.

I guess some more data is needed here where that ISO in question actually 
comes from and how it was made, before the tools it was created with can 
be blamed.
