Use archie to look for

I still have a copy of this around.  Can anyone think of a good reason
NOT to add this program to the FTP archive in NetBSD-*/utilities?  You
can get away with not using Rawrite, but a partition editor is kind of
necessary.  It would probably make sense to put booteasy and os-bs
there, as well.
