  Modified files:
  - Add support for using swap backed md(4) devices for building the
    disk image.  In some cases this can be a significant speed-up, if
    most of the image can be kept in RAM while being populated.
    On the 2GB image I'm currently working with, the build time,
    excluding buildworld/buildkernel, goes from ~17 minutes to ~6
    This is not enabled by default, as it might have the opposite effect
    on low-memory systems.
  - During the generation of the image file be a bit more verbose in the
    log file so it is possible to see what's being done.
  - Add a NANO_DISKIMGDIR variable which makes it possibly to place the
    final images somewhere other than ${MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX}.  The default
  Go for it:      phk
