It seems it was already fixed in another place.  I don't see why '/'
should be needed, my tests show it is not, so I have removed it.

But that's not supposed to be needed, that's odd. See pxelinux.txt
documentation, pxelinux.cfg is really supposed to be a directory,
containing various possibilities, including "default", which is what we
provide since that's independent from any hardware. Since we provide
pxelinux.0 ourself, that's really how things are supposed to happen.
Where did you take your netboot.tar.gz?
