NetBSD 5.0.1 release binary distribution
sparc/installation/floppy/disk2 binary (which is a symlink to
sparc/installation/bootfs/instfs.tgz) doesn't fit 1440KB floppy.

- prepare own list file of a crunchide binary for instfs and
  remove unnecesarry binaries to shrink it
  (instfs.tgz is created from a file list for miniroot;
   see src/distrib/sparc/instfs/Makefile)
- switch to using ustarfs based boot floppies with RAMDISK kernel
  (I don't know reason why sparc doesn't use it)
