I think nobody bothered yet to implement hfs stuff for m68k/macs, Michael?

But I guess we'd like to have some improvements with the CDs as we discussed
yesterday, Nick checked in a few things, I think. Not sure if dmesg is
allready there, it might be the best to add it to the m68k-specials in the
boot-floppies. Do we have time for another bf build? I might be able to
upload it tomorrow (with the same version number, evil, evil).

Also Michael proposed to put amiga|atariinstall archives (tgz instead of
lha) into the boot-floppies, which would eat another 9MB on the CDs. This
would have to be accounted for in the cd scripts. Also in some readme I read
that you need lha to build m68k CDs, this is no longer true, since we
dropped lha support completely. But I am becoming more and more off-topic
