Thanks! At least I now understand what was happening. It still seems like it
would be a good idea to treat the variable as absolute when the first character
is a '/'. 

I went ahead and reinstalled the OS using the install tool on the distribution,
It worked almost perfectly My complements to the authors. Almost no files that
I had modified were lost. There were a few exceptions but was easy to guess
what might have been replaced, check on mtimes to confirm. (find did the work.)

As a result, I have a working system, so won't be able to test the mullfs
trick. Looks like it should work, though.

One thing that would have helped ti relieve my concerns was an ability to step
directly over the disc setup directly to the installation, though a warning
about overwriting system files.

Again, thanks for the explanation. I'll close this ticket, now.
