	The pc532 port doesn't preserve the kernel used to build the installation
floppy in ${RELEASEDIR}/installation/kernel, like many other ports do. This is
unfortunate. It's even worse because the kernel is stripped, so there is no
where to look for an unstripped version of that kernel, nor is there a good
place for the symbols files to live.

	'make release' should be modified to save the floppy kernel in
installation/kernel, as well as provide the output of 'nm' on it, prior
to stripping it.
