I have built boot-floppies locally to test it, and my base2_2.tgz has ./bin/kill.

 $ tar -tvzf base2_2.tgz |grep bin/kill
-rwxr-xr-x root/root     12292 2000-01-12 06:41:17 ./bin/kill
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2000-02-04 20:19:52 ./bin/pidof -> ../sbin/killall5
-rwxr-xr-x root/root      8756 1999-12-31 04:41:16 ./sbin/killall5

And, scripts/basedisks/PACKAGES_all (the file used to create the base system)
includes procps. So /bin/kill should have installed in your system, if you
use our boot-floppies.

FYI.
