There are only two uses of MBR_PTYPE_386BSD in src/distrib. One is a
perfectly innocuous list of partition type IDs. The other is in
src/distrib/utils/sysinst/arch/i386/md.c, which changes the partition
ID of a MBR_PTYPE_386BSD partition to MBR_PTYPE_NETBSD if no
MBR_PTYPE_NETBSD partitions are seen.
This is, however, only reached if someone's explicitly attempting to
upgrade an existing installation, so it's probably harmless -- I think
you got hosed by disklabel.
This code should probably be removed from sysinst too, but maybe after
-6 is branched.
