src/distrib/mipsco/instkernel/Makefile 1.7 made build of ECOFF kernels 
conditional on ECOFF_KERNEL being defined.

However, this symbol is never defined. As a result, ECOFF installation kernels 
are not built.

Since the PROM can only boot ECOFF binaries, there is no way to boot 
NetBSD/mipsco installation media.
Try to boot netbsd-INSTALL from the network.
Remove bogus .if defined(ECOFF_KERNEL) and .endif lines.
