I've changed my tree so rcS spawns /sbin/dbootstrap, however it just 
hangs.  I believe it is segfaulting since I was seeing segfaults when I
built standalone versions of dbootstrap.  I've done test versions using the
release_notes_test rule and others which all segfault in strlen().
Normally I'd blame gcc/libc on PowerPC, but I have changed my build
environment since I built good images with the release of boot-floppies
2.2.1 which was pre new busybox.  My script echos so at least I know init
is spawning dbootstrap.

I will try this on a video console machine since I can't see a lot of error
messages on serial console.
