Also, I'm assuming someone is maintaining patches to 
/usr/src/release/Makefile and /usr/src/release/*/boot_crunch.conf

The crunchgen stuff looks easy;

The only other thing to do is set $init_path in loader.conf to include 
/stand/pc-sysinstall, which can be done in the Makefile.



Before I go butchering my source tree, does anyone care to share 
existing patches?
