Bug#698670: freebsd-utils: mount_mfs missing

Package: freebsd-utils
Version: 9.0+ds1-9
Severity: normal

The freebsd-utils package is missing mount_mfs, so FreeBSD memory-backed
filesystems cannot be mounted from fstab.  E.g., if I add the following line
to /etc/fstab as I would in FreeBSD:

md /tmp mfs rw,-s32m 0 0

I get an error when I try to mount it:

# mount /tmp
mount: exec mount_mfs not found: No such file or directory
mount: in path: /sbin:/usr/sbin

As a workaround I can create it manually with mdconfig:

# mdconfig -a -t swap -s 32m
# mkfs -t ufs /dev/md1
/dev/md1: 32.0MB (65536 sectors) block size 16384, fragment size 2048
        using 4 cylinder groups of 8.02MB, 513 blks, 1088 inodes.
Erasing sectors [128...65535]
Erasing sectors [64512...65535]
super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:
 160, 16576, 32992, 49408
# mount /dev/md1 /tmp

But this makes it difficult to mount mfs filesystems at boot.
