Machine: amd64

Running makefs(8) to create an FFS file system from small directory
tree (for example, an empty one), it prints the message "Filesystem
size 32 < minimum size of 40" and exits with a failure status.  Also,
the resulting image is not mountable.

You can work around this using the -M option, but you shouldn't have to.


mkdir dir
makefs img dir
