The tinybsd tool when prompting for config settings prompts for the MFSROOT option and suggests the options are YES/NO.  If you say YES, though, it ignores your desire to have an MFSROOT as it checks the value = 'yes'.
Run tinybsd script and answer YES to the "Use an MFSROOT? (YES/NO)" prompt
patch attached to change (YES/NO) to (yes/no)
