I jumped through a few hoops to get -current (3.99.21) built for vax,
and boot.mop is not being built.

instead I get:

$ file installation/netboot/boot
installation/netboot/boot: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Digital VAX, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, stripped

which isn't moppable.

where's boot.mop?

I was, however, able to get -current booted on it by installboot-ing new
bootblocks and the install kernel, so that's some progress.  it's
running sysinst right now...
