I notified the www team about it.

As far as I know it works just fine in -current, just go to src/etc and
run "make iso-image". Since I never tested with the final version that ended
up in the tree, I'll test that right now (and fix, if it needs to be fixed).

But it did not work for the 1.6 release, and I'm not sure about the pullup
status of this, i.e. if it will work in 1.6.1 or not.
