no i ditched hfsutils and yaboot a loooong time ago.  now
ybin/mkofboot/yabootconfig on the root disk are a tiny wrapper that
sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH and runs ybin from /target/...  /usr/lib/yaboot
is a symlink to /target/usr/lib/yaboot

that was the only way especially given the discusting bloat of current
yaboot binary.
